Mental Health Services: 
Catalyst Counseling

We want all of our students to be healthy and ready to learn, and we recognize that strong mental health and wellness play a vital role in a student's growth and success. Students who are struggling with stress, anxiety or other concerns cannot focus on school work. That's why Shawnee Early Childhood School partners with Catalyst Counseling to help increase student access to high quality and affordable mental healthcare. 

The partnership is made possible by the district's partnership with MindPeace, a non-profit that serves as a catalyst for connecting its network of professional mental health providers with schools. After a rigorous needs assessment and interview process, we identified Catalyst Counseling as our partner.
