Telehealth School-based Therapy
The Salt Lake City School District is excited to announce a partnership with Odyssey House to provide free Telehealth School-based Therapy to any student in the Salt Lake City School District. Services are funded through a Department of Human Services Suicide Prevention grant and a Salt Lake County Behavioral Health grant.
“We know that, right now, many of our students are dealing with depression, anxiety, peer struggles, and other mental health issues,” said Larry Madden, Interim Superintendent, Salt Lake City School District. “And we know these issues have been exacerbated as families and students have dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic and the statewide school dismissal. Caring for the whole child is a top priority for our district, and we are thrilled to announce this new partnership with Odyssey House to help us better care for our students’ mental health needs.”
Access to telehealth therapy will be free to any student who is not covered by Medicaid or other health insurance. Students who have health coverage may also access services through Odyssey via their health insurance. Families who are interested in setting up a Telehealth appointment with a licensed therapist may request an appointment by filling out the online referral form.
