Youth in crisis qualify for school-based services based on their location. Our providers are available to provide rapid, skilled support services for crisis situations including thoughts of suicide, self-harm, mental health-related hospitalizations, mental health concerns, and more.
School Based Services
Available at Grant Wood AEA schools in Iowa, Johnson and Washington counties.
Our dedicated Grant Wood AEA case manager and trained crisis counselors help students and their families achieve and maintain stability, including concerns about behavior, mental health, thoughts of suicide or a suicide attempt, and similar challenges.
We report to Grant Wood AEA schools, the hospital, and other locations to provide crisis assessment and intervention services where you are. We also offer comprehensive referral services to help students and their families access the on-going support they need. All services are confidential and free of charge.
Examples of how we can help:
“A father voiced that during his child’s hospital stay, the child’s diagnosis had changed. Overwhelmed on how to proceed, he asked Foundation 2 to contact the school. The Foundation 2 caseworker communicated the changes to ensure an IEP meeting would be held. The parent expressed how thankful they were for the Foundation 2 caseworker’s support.”
“The Foundation 2 caseworker met with a student being discharged from the hospital to complete a safety plan. The student was able to complete the plan and discuss coping strategies they would like at school. The caseworker contacted school administrators and discussed allowing these coping strategies. The strategies have been utilized and proven successful.”
