THE GEORGIA APEX PROGRAM: SCHOOL-BASED MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
The Georgia Apex Program, funded by the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, creates partnerships between community-based mental health providers and local schools to provide school-based mental health services. The program began as a pilot in August 2015 and is now in its fourth year (academic year 2018-2019).
The program’s goals include increasing access to mental health services for children and youth, providing early detection of child and adolescent mental health needs, and strengthening coordination between community-based mental health providers and local schools.
