The Indian Hill School District partners with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to provide families access to additional private mental health support services for students. This allows families the choice of accessing a private therapist from a nationally renowned research hospital right here on the Indian Hill Schools campus. It also reduces the time students miss attending class, and eliminates the need for parents and students to travel to these appointments.
The District also works with MindPeace, a local organization that helps align the partners, infrastructure and processes for children’s mental health solutions between schools and local agencies. MindPeace helped identify Children’s as the most appropriate partner for our District and continues to work with us to support and enhance the services we provide our students.
Children’s provides an independently licensed social worker plus a clinical psychologist to privately serve students with significant mental health challenges. These optional services will be in addition to those offered by our school guidance counselors and psychologists.
Two therapists are on site five days a week to meet with students, as needed. Flexible hours before and after school are available as needed. Contact your child's counselor if you need assistance.
1N5 is a third organization with whom we partner to help support mental wellness among all our students. 1N5 is focused on making a difference in how we talk about mental health.
