School Based Services

CarePlus is making a positive impact in classrooms, schools, and our communities. We have developed and implemented several innovative programs to help New Jersey schools overcome some of their biggest challenges surrounding mental, social and emotional health of students.

CarePlus’ School Based Services, offers solutions to school districts by providing a wide-range of onsite services including counseling, care coordination, school clearance assessments, and access to CarePlus’ full continuum of integrated care and social support services. Our district-selected clinicians create tailored learning environments, based on the need of the student and the school.
