What Is the School Intervention Program?

The School Intervention Program (SCIP) was designed to help at-risk children and teens who exhibit multiple behavioral, emotional and/or social problems. Individuals under the age of 21 are eligible.

SCIP offers support when the individual’s issues interfere with:

  • School attendance
  • Academic performance
  • Social interactions with peers or authority figures within the school setting

Help for Mental or Behavioral Health Is Available in All Suffolk Public Schools

SCIP is different from some other programs for youth, in that it’s available directly through your child’s school. This gives students and parents direct access to helpful services and eliminates common barriers to care, like scheduling and transportation. SCIP is currently available in all Suffolk public schools.

What Services Does SCIP Provide?

Case Management

Case management provides long-term rehabilitation services, designed to link individuals with care options, as well as monitor and advocate for them throughout the care system

Outpatient Counseling

Outpatient counseling through SCIP is done in the school. This way, parents don’t have to disrupt their schedules or drive to appointments

Referrals To Other Community-Based Partnerships

We can connect students that might have behavioral or mental health challenges with private providers in the community that offer therapeutic day treatment.

Crisis support

Classroom interventions


Therapeutic groups

Even if you’re uninsured or underinsured, you can still access therapeutic group services.

Getting Behavioral Health Help for Your Child or Teen Is Easier Than You Think

When your child is struggling at school, you can get them help, and it’s easier than you might think. SCIP is available in all Suffolk public schools and can give your child the support and resources they need to excel in school and in the community.

If you think SCIP can help your child, give us a call at 757-758-5106 or reach out online to ask how to get started.
