LCSD Partners with ARISE for Health Screening
Tuesday, May 3, 2016
The Liverpool Central School District has partnered with ARISE Child & Family Service to enhance the efforts of bringing mental wellness to the community.
Your school has been selected to participate in a health screening administered by ARISE and made possible through a New York State Office of Mental Health funded grant. This service is intended to help parents gain a better understanding of their child's emotional health and, if needed, provide knowledge about which service options may be available to help address any concerns.
This is free, voluntary, and confidential screening designed to be sensitive to each child and family's needs. It uses information from the Pediatric Symptom Checklist (PSC-35), which is a brief emotional and behavioral health screening questionnaire for children, 3 to 18 years of age, to indicate challenges in behavioral health. This screening will not diagnose your child, but will be a way to connect with mental health resources in the community.
A copy of the screening form will be sent home with your child in the near future.
ARISE is a dynamic human-service agency and independent living center that serves many individuals and families throughout several counties in New York State. It is committed to initiatives in promoting physical and mental wellness and access to resources for community members.
