Odyssey House is excited to provide youth with School-based therapeutic services.

We provide therapy to students in Salt Lake County school districts (Salt Lake, Granite, Canyons, Jordan, and Murray). We have therapists on-site in multiple schools to support students, families, and school staff who see a student in emotional distress. Services include individual therapy, family therapy, community education, child psychiatric evaluations, and medication management.

The main goal is to help youth identify issues early, learn healthy coping strategies, and get them back on track quickly. School therapy is one of our most exciting programs, given that we have a chance to address kids' issues before they become more advanced, leading to suicide or drug addiction. By addressing stressors early, kids will show marked improvements in attendance, behavior, and academic success.

Odyssey is in-network with most insurance plans; if funding is a concern, we have several grants to cover costs. Don't let cost get in the way. We can provide free services! Odyssey's programming is a 57-time Best of State winner and one of Utah's most successful behavioral health programs.

Mental Health Focus

Dual Diagnosis Enhanced

Treatment teams can address co-occurring addictions or issues present.

What is school-based therapy?

Therapists address mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship stressors through individual therapy, case management for families, and consultation with school staff.

Are parents or guardians involved?

Yes! Parents/guardians are a vital part of our treatment team. Our therapists will meet with you to learn your perspective and ask questions to help develop a unique treatment plan for your child. You'll be updated regularly on your child's progress and collaborate with the therapist to ensure your child's treatment plan is most effective.

Are schools involved?

Yes. School faculty consult with therapists, make referrals, and receive updates on a need-to-know basis about how therapy will impact the student in the classroom.

How long does treatment last?

Treatment usually lasts 3-12 months, longer as needed on a case-by-case basis. Sessions typically happen weekly but will be modified based on the kid's progress or regression.

Does therapy interfere with the school day?

Therapists schedule rotating sessions so students don't miss the same weekly class. Therapists work with the attendance office to excuse any absences related to therapy.

What happens during school breaks or in the summer?

Because we are an outside agency, therapists are available for sessions during school breaks and continue through the summer via telehealth or at one of our offices in Taylorsville or West Jordan.

What does it cost?

We bill insurance, including Medicaid. There is no out-of-pocket cost to you. We do have special funding for those with no insurance or Medicaid.
