School Children3Family Continuity has championed moving toward an Integrated Model of Care in Massachusetts by proving clinicians in a variety of community settings such as including behavioral health and initial psychiatric assessment in schools. Our School-Based Behavioral Health Centers (SBBHC) originated in response to area schools' increased need for behavioral health support. The goal of the SBBHC model is to reduce the demands on schools nurses, guidance departmenrs, and teachers and increase the level of support children recieve througout the shcool date by providing clincians to work with children in teh school. Additionally, we can provide psychiatric assessment and traning for administrators on how to recovnize trauma and identify children at risk.

Clinicians work in partnership with medical professionals to provide a bridge between these institutions and specialty behavioral healthcare when necessary. This continuity of care provides a holistic approach to the clients’ experience and reduces treatment barriers.

Currently, FC is providing services to the following school districts:

  • Northbridge, Uxbridge, Medway, Douglas, Mendon-Upton, Blackstone-Millville and Bellingham High Schools and Middle Schools
  • Higgins Middle School, Peabody
  • Lawrence High School, Lawrence
  • Barnstable Middle School


FC's SBBHC programs are tailored to the unique needs of each individual school. If you are interested

SBBHC originated in response to area schools’  increased need for behavioral heath support.  Initial funding from local foundations enabled Family Continuity to develop programs in a number of districts over the past 3 years.  The goal of the SBBHC model is reduce the demands on school nurses, guidance departments, and teachers, and increase the level of support children receive throughout the school day by providing FC clinicians to work with children in the school.
