Relate exists to meet needs in our community. For this reason, we partner with the state of Minnesota and West-Metro school districts to provide co-located services in the schools to serve students who otherwise would not have access to our services. Relate currently has clinicians working in more than 50 schools across eight districts. This involves a close working relationship with school staff who identify students with unmet needs and then refer those students and their families to the Relate school-based clinician. School-based mental health services eliminate barriers and help Relate reach hundreds of youth and families whose needs may otherwise have gone unmet.

If you are a parent or guardian of a child who you’d like to be connected to a School Services Therapist, please contact their school counselor, social worker, or IEP case manager to discuss a referral to School Services Therapy.
