Mental Health Services

Lebanon City Schools is committed to nurturing total child development and believes we must address the needs of all students. That is why we are proud of our partnership with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and MindPeace to provide families access to mental health supports and school-based therapeutic services for students in our district.

Cincinnati Children's Hospital - Lebanon’s partnership with Cincinnati Children’s will give students greater access to mental health services. The school-based mental health services program is an integral component of all aspects of our schools, with an emphasis on supporting students’ social-emotional wellness. Parents, teachers and school counselors can make student referrals for service.

Please contact your child's school counselor to discuss available resources, referral services or for questions regarding services. 

MindPeace Cincinnati is a non-profit organization that helps align the partners, infrastructure and processes for children’s mental health solutions between schools and local agencies. MindPeace collaborates with many community partners like Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, the Hamilton County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, the Community Learning Center Institute, school systems, government agencies, and providers to advocate for customized mental health solutions to better serve our children. According to Mindpeace, mental illness affects approximately one in every five children and less than 25% of children are able to access mental health care.


UPDATE TO COVID-19 RESPONSE

“Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is committed to the safety of all patients. Similar to the rest of the country, CCHMC has the potential to be impacted by the COVID-19 virus and we are expecting an increase in patients presenting to our emergency departments.  Our goal is for patients who do not need emergent care to avoid the emergency department in an attempt to avoid unnecessary exposure to infectious illness. 

For mental health crises or emergencies, patients and families are encouraged to contact their current mental health provider first.   This allows the mental health provider, who knows your child best, to provide support and direction.   If your child does not have a mental health provider, and they are experiencing a non-life threatening mental health crisis, you are encouraged to contact the Psychiatric Intake Response Center (PIRC) at CCHMC 513.636.4124.  The PIRC staff will help you to decide the most effective level of intervention for your child’s mental health crisis – which may include an urgent psychiatric assessment in the PIRC Bridge Clinic. 

You should go to the emergency department if you are experiencing a medical emergency, a life-threatening mental health crisis, or are directed to go there by a medical provider. This will help limit the spread of the virus in our community and allow our emergency departments to care for patients with the most critical needs first."
