Student Assistance Program (SAP)

When schools, parents, students, or social service agencies recognize a student is at risk, they can make referral to our Student Assistance Program (SAP). SAP provides a Liaison who will work with the schools and that student.

We refer students to supports and services designed to help them overcome learning barriers, remain enrolled in school, and become successful citizens in the community. Services provided by SAP include:

  • Screenings for mental health, drug, alcohol, and/or suicide concerns
  • Referrals to community resources and guidance with accessing applicable services
  • Prevention, intervention, and/or educational support groups
  • Grief counseling and supports for students and staff following a traumatic event in the school or community

SAP, a requirement of all PA schools, was designed to assist parents and educators in helping students achieve a more successful school experience. SAP is a free and confidential support for all kindergarten through twelfth grade students.

A student can be referred by the core team (school personnel), parent, teacher, or a social service agency.

We will contact the child’s parent and/or guardian before conducting an assessment.

Check the county listing for the services available in your area.
