How is Teenline Connected to the Schools and Communities?

Teenline counselors work as mental health liaisons to the school’s Student Assistance Program (SAP) teams.

Teenline provides the following services regarding mental health concerns to school personnel, individuals and families, and other area professionals:

• Behavioral health services

• Outpatient mental health services, including individual, group and family therapy 

• Psychiatric, psychological, and drug and alcohol evaluations

• Educational workshops, presentations and training on mental health topics
