    Concord Mental Health and Substance Use Prevention Services

    Concord Counseling’s prevention services are designed to inform, educate, demonstrate skills, and reduce risk behaviors in students. Through social and emotional learning, students will acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. Prevention clinicians provide short-term individual or group skill-building sessions to assist a student with a particular concern. Prevention clinicians also provide suicide/self-harm risk assessments and can link families to community-based counseling services. Referrals for prevention services must be made through a school counselor or administrator.
