Supporting the Well-Being of Children and Youthpreteen girls

Gunnison Valley Health’s Behavioral Health Department provides free, school-based counseling services to students at Lake and Gunnison Elementary School and Crested Butte Middle and High Schools. This service is a first for the Gunnison Watershed School District and is a major step forward in removing barriers to access and addressing the behavioral health needs of children and youth in the Gunnison Valley.

Our school-based services are funded by the Gunnison Watershed School District and the Gunnison County Substance Abuse Prevention Project. The School District was able to identify the age groups most in need of this critical service and Gunnison Valley Health was able to structure it to be as supportive to students, families and school staff as possible.

What We Offer

  • Free, individual counseling with licensed and experienced clinicians
  • A family-centered approach that supports the whole family to maximum success for the student
  • Because the clinicians are embedded in the school, students have access and disruption to their schedule
