For over a decade this program has provided a full-time, licensed mental health clinician in 15 local Baltimore public schools. This program delivers mental health services at school during the course of the day. Many families find this an easier way to initiate and continue care. Clinicians provide individual, group, and family-based interventions for youth enrolled in the program. Senior child psychiatry fellows and faculty provide diagnostic assessment and medication management if needed. Close coordination with teachers and school staff allow for smoother implementation of behavioral programs as well as direct communication about progress. School advocacy and parent communication are also critical components of this program.

The Child Development-Community Policing Program
The Child Development-Community Policing Program (CDCP) works to break the cycle of violence by intervening shortly after a child has witnessed or been affected by a violent or traumatic event. A police officer who has received training in child development, along with a mental health clinician, and a member of the community will meet with the child and his/her caregivers to assess the child's needs and to determine whether follow-up treatment is needed.
