- The Children’s Bureau of New Orleans works with schools in the community to deliver mental health services that may be needed by students. The agency works in almost 50 schools in Orleans Parish.
Children’s Bureau is partnering with McDonogh City Park Academy (grades K-8) and Tulane University’s Department of Psychology to develop a model for a comprehensive system of behavioral and mental health support services in a school setting. Key components of this system include: full commitment and involvement of school leaders; a universal behavioral and emotional health screening; the universal implementation of a social and emotional learning curriculum that is taught by the teachers; teacher support, consultation and professional development; and the delivery of group and individual clinical interventions to students identified as having mental and/or behavioral health issues.
Children’s Bureau also has mental health clinicians who provide on-site clinical services to students who attend Collegiate Academies’ Sci Academy and Firstline’s Arthur Ashe Charter School.
