Better Days in the Classroom and Beyond

Serving St. Louis and Jefferson County

School-based counselors provide the tools that build emotional strength and support 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 Behavioral Health offers school-based therapy for children and teens with emotional or behavioral problems. Through partnerships with districts throughout the St. Louis region, our counselors 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 counseling sessions when there are students with similar challenges. Most often, our therapists 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.

Please note: Provident's school-based counseling program will follow the attendance plans of the districts we serve. Services will be temporarily halted as we do our part to minimize exposure to COVID-19, but we are always just a phone call away on our Crisis Hotline at 314.647.4357.

Updates will be posted here and on our social media pages.

Note: There is no out of pocket expense for counseling to St. Louis County youth under the age of 20 thanks to a grant from St. Louis County Children's Service Fund.
