Addressing Emerging Mental Health Needs
LearnWell Counseling Services provides supplemental therapeutic counseling support for schools to help reduce the risk of hospitalization or other crises. Because students’ struggles with mental health often have an impact on academic progress, LearnWell Tutoring Services provide one-to-one instructional support via videoconference.
Promoting Academic Progress During Mental Health Treatment
When students require treatment in an inpatient, residential or day-treatment facility, LearnWell Academics During Mental Health Treatment provide a specialized instructional approach to supporting academic progress.
Transitioning Back to the School Environment Following Treatment
LearnWell Counseling Services are available as part of the discharge process for the necessary follow-up appointments and ongoing counseling sessions when students return to school. Additionally, LearnWell Tutoring Services are available to help students who may be homebound for a period of time, or who may need additional support when they return to class to catch-up or maintain progress with classmates.
As an integrated component of your clinical programming, our academic programs help foster continuity and structure for students, while reducing the stress of falling behind during treatment. Our educators are specially trained to address unique needs of students in behavioral health treatment. Our counseling services are available as part of the discharge process to provide ongoing support to help ease the transition from treatment facility to home.
Our counseling services act as an extension of your district psychologists and guidance counselors to serve students with emerging mental health needs and those who may require ongoing services after mental health treatment. Additionally, we provide high-quality academic instruction and tutoring for your students receiving mental health treatment.
Your child will receive mental health counseling and academic services throughout the continuum of care from a staff dedicated to one mission: supporting mental health student wellness.
LearnWell provides an integrated set of academic and mental health services for students and their families throughout the continuum of care to address emerging mental health needs, promote academic wellness during treatment, and support the transition back to the school environment following treatment.
Across the country we partner with hospitals and treatment facilities, K-12 school districts, and families to support mental health wellness.

Featured Success Story
Andrew is an Assistant Director who has been with LearnWell for 3 years, starting as a teacher at a Community-Based Acute Treatment (CBAT) program. He currently manages 7 teachers in their professional development in behavioral health settings and collaborates with Program Directors on 9 hospital accounts in Southern Massachusetts. When asked what is something he likes about LearnWell, he responded “I love that our work makes a difference in students’ lives. Many students can slip through the cracks in our education system when they are hospitalized for a few weeks, but we bridge that gap to ensure they stay on track to graduate!”
WALDEN BEHAVIORAL CARE
Walden Behavioral Care runs both an Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Eating Disorder Program and an Adolescent Residential Eating Disorder Program. The patients within these programs tend to be unique in that many of them learn well above their grade levels and may even be taking AP (Advanced Placement) college-level courses. The administrators at Walden Behavioral Care also faced a challenge of how to fit both therapy and education into each patient’s day.
Working with LearnWell allows the school component of the program to be managed by people who are experts in education rather than expecting therapists to be experts in education.Ima Jean SmithRockford Center
