Mental Health Services
In addition to our staff of school counselors, the Loveland City School District partners with Best Point Education and Behavioral Health (formerly The Children's Home) to provide school-based counseling services. This partnership provides students with high-quality mental health services to help ensure academic success. Best Point Education and Behavioral Health services are provided in the school, at home, or at the Best Point Education and Behavioral Health location by a licensed mental health therapist. Best Point Education and Behavioral Health provides independently licensed therapists at all of the Loveland school buildings to serve students with mental health challenges.
These optional services are available to all Loveland students and allow families the choice of accessing a private therapist on-site at their student's school building. This reduces the time students miss from class and eliminates the need for parents/guardians and students to travel to these appointments.
The therapist works with the student and parent/guardian to determine the specific plan that meets the needs of the student. Concerns addressed include, but are not limited to:
- Depression/mood disorders
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder
- Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) treatment
- Families can cover the cost of these optional services through insurance, Medicaid, or private pay options.
Please complete this form if you would like Best Point Education and Behavioral Health therapist to contact you to learn more about the services provided or to make an appointment for your student. You can also contact your student's school counselor for information, questions or to refer your student.
Loveland City Schools is focused on promoting the social and emotional well-being of students through our continued partnership with BestPoint. They offer a variety of school-based support services, including Behavioral Health Counseling, Care Coordination, and Medication Management Services. BestPoint also offers support to adolescents with substance-use issues through the Specialized Treatment for Adolescent Recovery program. Therapeutic services are provided by highly qualified, independently licensed clinicians and the cost of services is covered through Medicaid as well as most private insurance plans. If you have a child or know a student who could benefit from therapeutic support services, please do not hesitate to reach out for help.
