Strong Minds

Strong Minds: mental health for a new generation documents the high quality mental health services with psychiatric supervision in public schools provided by The Children's Aid Society's model Community School program. This partnership between Children's Aid, the New York City Board of Education and other community partners also provides families with medical and dental clinics, after school, evening, weekend and holiday programs, and adult education, all year round. Currently being adopted nationwide at over 50 sites, this model transforms the neighborhood public school - the most comfortable setting for children and families - into a full service community center.
