How Does Teenline Work with Schools and Communities?
Teenline counselors work as mental health liaisons to the schools’ Student Assistance Program (SAP) teams. SAP teams consist of school personnel who are trained to identify and refer students who are experiencing barriers to learning and school success and may be at risk for mental health and/or drug and alcohol concerns.
