Better Days in the Classroom and Beyond

Emotional strength that supports learning

Most young people spend five days a week, nine months of the year in a formal classroom setting. It is here that they prepare for their future, and also where emotional challenges tend to be the most obvious.

Provident offers school-based counseling for children and teens with emotional or behavioral problems. Through partnerships with districts throughout the St. Louis region, our therapists are able intervene so children get the help they need to achieve their best at school.

We do school-wide training, programmatic work on topics such as bullying, and small group sessions when there are students with similar challenges. Most often we work one-on-one with individual students to identify their unique needs and develop a plan to address them. We connect them with outside resources when necessary and help put them on a path to success.
