Day Treatment Program
Additional Information on our Day Treatment Program
The Rockingham County Schools' Day Treatment Program is committed to providing quality services to children, youth and families affected by mental illness/behavioral problems. These services are provided to enhance their potential to remain within the home community and function successfully within the mainstream educational setting.
Day Treatment serves adolescents and children who are not being successful in their regular school setting due to behavioral/emotional difficulties. It integrates individualized education with therapeutic treatment for youth. Youth Haven Services, a Critical Access Behavioral Health Agency (CABHA), has partnered with Rockingham County Schools to provide clinical oversight and support to the program. This ensures that each youth is able to earn school credits while acquiring skills to successfully cope with his or her behavioral and emotional challenges.
Day Treatment provides individualized education integrated with intensive mental health treatment services based on individual treatment plans to improve functional skills including, but not limited to:
Social skills development
Adaptive skills training (personal care, leisure, etc.)
Enhancement of communication and problem-solving skills
Positive behaviors support activities and reinforcements
Case Management services
Specialized instruction to address curricular and/ or special education needs
