School-Based Therapy

Centerstone offers School-Based Therapy within many Tennessee schools. Providing integrated mental health treatment for children and adolescents, School-Based Therapists work within preschool, elementary, middle and high school facilities, helping students overcome behavioral, emotional or social problems that interfere with success at school and at home.

  • Isolation
  • Poor social skills
  • Stress
