WellPower’s school-based therapists provide effective, individualized, strength-based, trauma-informed, and culturally respectful mental health treatment services to students within Denver Public Schools. Therapists collaborate with parents, guardians, school personnel and community organizations. Our school-based program focuses on communities of color and other diverse student populations, given the inequities in supportive services and health care. Providing therapeutic services within the school setting increases the ease of access while decreasing barriers to treatment.
We know that healthy students are more likely to go to school ready to learn, actively engage in school activities, have supportive and caring connections with adults and young people, use appropriate problem-solving skills, add to positive school culture and engage in safe behaviors.
The school-based team believes that children, youth, and families are resilient, and we support them in achieving a healthy and successful future.
