Behavioral Health

At the Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools, we believe that healthy children of all ages make better students. When they feel good, they can better focus on learning.

RAHS offers a variety of services to meet the behavioral health needs of teens, including counseling services for depression and anxiety, stress management groups, and support groups for grief or anger that combine care for our minds as well as our bodies to help alleviate symptoms. Medical doctors are also available at each clinic to assist with behavioral health issues that require medications.
