Vance County Schools
Student Behavior Health Program
A Brief Description
The purpose of the Vance County Schools (VCS) Student Behavior Health Program is to increase the availability of evidence-based mental health services designed to facilitate students' emotional well-being and enhance their ability to access and benefit from institutions.
The Student Behavior Mental Health Program is a collaborative effort between Vance County Schools and private mental health agencies in this region. The services provided are in addition to the work already being done by VCS student services staff. Services may be recommended when a student has already received VCS student service support and/or exhibits social-emotional difficulties that are having or will likely have a substantial impact upon the student's learning and overall development. Parents may also request assistance in securing mental health services potentially provided in the school setting by private providers though the student services staff ( primarily the school counselor) at their child's school.
