Mental Health Transition Team

The CCSD Mental Health Transition Team provides services and supports for CCSD Public School students transitioning from hospitals/treatment centers to the school environment, including the following:

  • Helping parents/guardians access community-based mental health providers and services, as needed
  • Assisting the school team (school psychologist, nurse, and counselor) in developing an understanding of the student’s mental health needs while creating a Re-entry Plan that identifies the specific transition services and supports for the student
  • Consulting with a school team regarding potential special education evaluation, programming, or placement needs
  • Helping a school team determine additional needs and services within school environments (such as Section 504 Accommodation Plans, Behavior Intervention Plans, progress monitoring needs relative to targeted intervention, etc.)
  • Working with school staff to build an effective support team on the school campus
  • Establishing effective communication and collaboration between parents, community providers, the CCSD Mental Health Transition Team, and school-based mental health intervention teams to promote student success.
