Mental Health Consultation Clinic at WSPA

Why have a mental health clinic?

Many students have health, behavioral, or emotional problems that keep them from attending school regularly, focusing on their school work, doing well in school, or getting along with their teachers or peers. In some cases, these students can be helped with counseling. Sometimes student’s problems suggest they need to be checked by a psychiatrist, who can offer medical treatment which may include prescribing medications. The School Health Alliance offers a special clinic for students who might benefit from a psychiatry visit to develop and carry out a care plan, with input from the student, family, family doctor, and the student’s school.

How does it work?

  1. Any Winston Salem/Forsyth County School student age 10 and older who is not already involved in psychiatric care may be considered for a referral.
  2. The referring school personnel (i.e. social worker, guidance counselor, psychologist) gathers information from the student, parents, and school.
  3. If the referring school thinks the student may benefit from this service, he/she discusses the program with the student and parents.
  4. The referring school personnel completes with the student, parents and teachers the referral forms and sends them to the Mental Health Consultation Clinic team for review.
  5. The clinic team meets to discuss the student’s needs and decides whether this clinic and/or other resources will best meet the student’s need.
  6. If recommended by the team meeting, the MHCC psychiatrist will evaluate the student with their parent/guardian present and assist the MHCC Social Worker and family doctor in developing the student’s plan of care.
  7. The Clinic Team works with the student, parents, and school to monitor the plan of care for a period of one year after the student’s final visit to the MHCC.

What services are offered?

  • Nursing visit to screen (check) height, weight, vision, hearing, blood pressure and immunizations
  • Review of health, mental health and school information
  • Evaluation by a child psychiatrist
  • Development of a mental health care plan
  • Consultation with student’s family doctor and school personnel to put the plan in place
