Featuring the Fred Finch program: Alameda County School-Based Services
As we kick off 2021 still in the grips of a pandemic, the impact on disadvantaged children and teens of color is outsized, with the potential for lasting consequences.
To understand how children have been affected, and the role that sustained mental health care during this time can have in helping them cope, we delve into Fred Finch’s school-based
therapy with the director of Alameda County School-Based Services, a therapist working with students at a continuation school in Hayward and an Oakland family who are getting therapy
through the program. We also offer parents suggestions on what to look for if they are concerned their child may be struggling with mental health and how to get help.
