Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Services RBHS
The GOAL of the Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Services (RBHS) program is to promote the mental wellness of ALL students in Florence School District Two.
The VISION of the RBHS program is to enhance the social/emotional learning of ALL students using Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 strategies and interventions needed to assist students in improving behaviors.
Counselors work with students to address issues that may interfere with academic or behavioral success. Areas such as mental and behavioral health and post-secondary transition planning (i.e. addressing potential issues of fear, anxiety, adjustment, etc. related to the transition to work or college) are common areas addressed by the behavioral health counselor.
In addition, communication with families and outside agencies, as well as collaboration with teachers and administrators are crucial components to addressing the issues related to behavior and classroom management for identified students. RBHS may help students overcome behavioral problems, improve their time management and organizational skills, establish academic goals, resolve interpersonal problems with other students, or work through personal problems.
Refer Students to Outside Agencies
In some cases, challenges that students are faced with cannot be handled at the school level. Under these circumstances, a school counselor may refer students to external agencies that are equipped to deal with the student’s concerns. For example, a school counselor may recommend to parents that their child undergo a psychiatric evaluation at the ER to address actively suicidal or homicidal thoughts or ideations.
