  • What is the School Behavior Health (SBH)?

    Cumberland County Schools has partnered with local mental health agencies to make it easier for families and students to access mental health services. 

    The School Behavioral Health (SBH) program provides support to students within the school building during the school day. Services may include: comprehensive clinical assessments, person-centered planning, individual, family, and group counseling, and medication management for students receiving treatment from the provider. 


    Families and students may seek assistance with mental health issues such as:

    • Symptoms of depression, anxiety, or anger
    • School avoidance
    • Frequent suspensions or infractions
    • Oppositional behavior
    • Low motivation and self-esteem
    • Suicidal ideation


    How do I sign my child up?

    Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, Mental health providers will be assigned to a small number of schools. Over time, all schools will offer SBH. Contact your child's school counselor or social worker to determine if your child's school offers the SBH program and the name of the assigned mental health provider.
