The Alameda School-Based Services (SBS) program provides mental health services designed to help youth learn to succeed in school—to improve their grades, attendance, and interpersonal relationships with their peers and families. Staff works closely with teachers, school staff, caregivers, parents, and students to improve students’ functioning at school and home. Working with individual students and their families, SBS staff evaluates each youth independently and develops a customized action plan to address each barrier to success.
