TIER 2:

Moderate Intensity Care and Crisis Response

As mental health challenges among young people increase, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, most districts have a growing population of students with mild to moderate mental health challenges who may need moderate intensity interventions or more intermittent support or assistance, as well as an increased number of students who demonstrate a mental health crisis. While many districts fulfill part of this need with guidance counselors, school psychologists and student assistant counselors (SAC), the caseloads of these individuals are often unsustainable. ESS’ Tier 2 clinical services are designed to help districts bridge these gaps.

What are Moderate Intensity Interventions and Crisis Response?

  • Programming for students with mild to moderate mental health challenges
  • Less intensive therapeutic structure
  • Crisis assessment and crisis re-entry

TIER 2 PROGRAM:

Moderate Intensity Clinical Programming

Through Tier 2 Moderate Intensity Clinical Programming, ESS provides districts with a clinical program designed to augment the efforts of existing school staff in supporting the needs of students with mild to moderate mental health challenges. Through this program, ESS clinicians deliver a combination of individual therapy and family therapy, while also being able to incorporate group therapy as needed.
TIER 2 PROGRAM:

Crisis Assessment, Response, and Re-entry Program

Districts can often become overwhelmed with the day-to-day load of activities that make up a robust crisis response program. ESS’ Crisis Assessment, Response, and Re-entry Programs support districts through all aspects of crisis assessment and the follow up process, including:

• Evidence-based student mental health assessments

• Referrals to appropriate services and coordination with outside providers

• Daily planning and debriefing meetings on crisis assessments with school administrators

• Coordination and case management of a student’s re-entry plan into the district
