This program includes partnerships with schools in Boston’s urban core.
In these schools, Boston Children’s Hospital clinicians, in collaboration with school staff, provide behavioral health prevention and promotion activities, early intervention services, and clinical assessment and treatment services to children in their educational home. Children’s clinicians also provide behavioral health training and consultation to school staff.
The School-Based Program includes three specialized components:
The Community Health Center Program includes partnerships with 4 community health centers in Boston, Jamaica Plain, and Roxbury. Boston Children's Hospital child and adolescent psychiatrists work on-site to provide early identification, assessment, treatment, and care coordination services to children and adolescents receiving primary medical care at the health centers. The psychiatrists also provide behavioral health training and consultation to health center staff.
CHNP partners with four community health centers and Boston public schools (both district and charter), including elementary, middle and high schools. We also have partnerships with several universities and community organizations.
Children’s Hospital Neighborhood Partnerships was created as an innovative community behavioral health program to reach children where they live and learn.
