School-based Services

The CCC has been providing school-based behavioral health services since 1998. Through contracts with Azusa and Glendora unified school districts, counseling is provided to students at the schools during school hours, and at the CCC office for family counseling or crisis management. Parental consent for services is required before start of treatment. Parental engagement in the assessment and treatment planning is highly encouraged. Sessions generally span an 8-week period, depending on need. The CCC has the capacity to extend services at additional school districts.

The school-based program includes but is not limited to the following services:

  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Conduct problems
  • Self-esteem
  • Grief and loss
  • Divorce
  • Family conflict

  • Ensuring that the CCC is prepared to meet these needs
  • Establishing a collaborative working relationship
