At onPsych, we understand the challenges facing schools today. Whilst many students find school a threatening place, others have trouble controlling their anger. As well as school-based problems many students exhibit the signs of being unable to cope with pressures from their home life. Left untreated, these students frequently develop more serious mental health problems, require additional school staff time, and disrupt the learning opportunities of other students.
Time that should be spent in a productive learning environment with all students can often be taken up dealing with undiagnosed and untreated social, emotional, behavioural and mental health conditions. Schools are freque ntly faced with inadequate resources to deal with the mental health requirements of their students.
onPsych is here to assist in providing another avenue for behavioural and mental health care to students on the school ground at no cost to the school or parents.
