Continuum of Care for Youth

School Based Programs

South Community Behavioral Health provides a continuum of services within the school-based programs that spans from prevention to intensive special education services. All services within the school-based programs are provided on site in education-based settings throughout Montgomery and Preble counties in South Central Ohio. Students in these programs have access to quality evidence strength-based programming and highly trained staff. This includes care coordination through case management, prevention services, mental health therapy and psychiatric services. In addition, every district has access to crisis support and a crisis debriefing intervention team in the event of a catastrophic event in their district as a part of their emergency preparedness planning with our agency.

School-Based Therapy

We offer experienced child and adolescent counseling in Dayton areas schools during the student’s school hours. Our school based services also remain involved with the student and their family over the summer months to preserve achieved gains into the following year.

Prevention Services

South Community, in partnership with Montgomery County’s Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Service Board, offers several programs to further the prevention of mental health concerns and addiction in the youth of our community. Initiatives implemented into the school setting aim to increase children’s academic success and reduce high-risk problematic behaviors.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am a parent of a child with special needs. We have been involved with South Community for many years. It is a partnership that I have come to rely on as an integral part of my son’s support system.

The summer program that South Community has in place is an awesome program that provides a wonderful opportunity for many kids at risk, who otherwise would be left out of a truly adventurous experience. READ MORE >>

I honestly do not know what I would have done without South Community. It has helped me so much in rebuilding my life. I went from living at home with my mother for financial reasons, and also severe depression, to having a place of my own and a job!

Thanks to South Community, I was able to get the therapy I needed. I was also able to obtain a caseworker, Lynn Wynstrep. Lynn helped me get my life back in order. READ MORE >>

To Staff of South Community:
Thank you all for a wonderful training year. You guys were a great supportive staff to work with. I felt like I was part of the team here, and I appreciate everyone for helping me with anything I needed throughout the year.

I know that many agencies talk about having a recovery focus, but the staff here truly implements it. I noticed it and my clients noticed it. From the front service desk to the providers in the back, there is an emphasis on client care. READ MORE >>
