Schools need social work and counseling services more than ever!
At E-Therapy we offer multiple therapy services including social work, counseling, mental health assessments, and behavior modification therapy. Pre-Covid, out of roughly 46 million children in schools, 7.7 million of them have some sort of mental health condition, according to a study by the University of Michigan. Even more staggering, is that only about half of these students receive the therapy they need.
What is going to happen when these students come back to a very different school environment?
Sadly, the causes of today’s mental health issues have been on the rise, even before the pandemic. Cyberbullying, for example, is a national issue. Increased screen time for youngsters on smartphones and social media platforms have been noted as key contributors.
We are now faced with an increase of mental health cases in children who are dealing with not only being quarantined from their social groups, but also with the unknown of what schools will look like, when and if they return in the fall. With a national team of certified mental health therapists on staff, schools can rely on teletherapy companies like E-Therapy for support.
Mental health support during the time of Covid-19 is essential!
With the uncertainty of how schools will reopen in the fall, the school environment will look very different. It is more important than ever to ensure your students get the attention and support they need to feel safe and supported. However, just when they are needed most, it may be impossible to hire in-house social workers and counselors to manage the influx of services your district needs.
E-Therapy can provide virtual therapy services in an affordable and extremely beneficial way. Our professional, experienced, and seasoned team has provided counseling and related services to schools for over 11 years. We are here when you need us.
