Fidgeting. Isolation. Fights. Falling behind. Excessive absences. Drug or alcohol abuse. This is what mental health issues look like in students, but the causes behind the behavior may include anxiety disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, adjustment disorders, autism, trauma or stressor disorders, depression, and other mental illnesses.
Fraser partners with schools and Head Start programs in Edina, Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Bloomington, as well as Ramsey, Anoka and Washington Counties, to provide onsite mental health care to students and families. We also offer consultations and training for school staff on managing mental health issues and behavior in the classroom.
