When students are expelled from school whether in the K-12 system or the college level, school administrators usually request a mental health evaluation be completed prior to the student's academic reinstatement.
This can be a stressful time for the student, the family and the school involved. Our licensed therapists treat each individual and family with compassion and kindness. We consider these types of appointments as priorities and endeavor to schedule these clients with a therapist within 24 hours. It is our commitment to turn around the necessary paperwork within 24 hours of the appointment time.
What you can expect
The appointment will last approximately 55 minutes. The first 20 minutes or so will include the student and their guardian or parents. The therapist then may meet with the student privately for the remainder of the session. The therapist will also be discussing the events that lead up to the expulsion with school administrators. A report will be created to clarify misunderstandings and to highlight areas of concern if any. This report is then forwarded to the school administrators within 24 hours. Parents and guardians are welcome to receive a copy if desired.
