Overview of our services:

The Seaton Mental Health Team provides a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). MTSS is designed to help us identify struggling students early and intervene quickly. It focuses on the “whole child.” That means it supports academic growth, but many other areas, too. These include behavior, social and emotional needs, and absenteeism (not attending school).

Through MTSS, we provide support classroom/school-wide (Tier 1), in small groups (Tier 2), or as an individual (Tier 3).

How to get services:

If you would like your child to receive services, please fill out the Mental Health Team Referral. Once a referral is filled out, our mental health team will review it and assign a team member to conduct an intake. They will then determine what can be done to best support the student.
