Each day, more than 52 million students attend over 114,000 schools across the U.S. Combined with the more than six million adults employed by those schools, nearly 20 percent of our nation’s population passes through our education system on any given day. For nearly 20 years, Excela Health Behavioral Health has been a leader in school-based behavioral health services, currently providing Student Assistance programs to 12 school districts throughout Westmoreland County.
We also operate comprehensive outpatient services in the Derry, Latrobe and Mount Pleasant school districts, providing individual, group and family therapy, and medication management. In addition to direct services, our professionals consult with teachers and school officials on behavioral health issues affecting the learning process and work together with them toward effective action.
