By partnering with Equity Associates, schools and families can help break down the following barriers that prevent young people from getting the mental health care they need.

  • 1 in 5 children and teens struggle with mental health issues during their school years, and severe challenges like self-harm and suicide are increasing among youth.

  • Sadly, about 60% of adolescents who need help don’t receive it due to stigma and lack of access to services. Rural areas may have even more stigma attached to mental health care.

  • Lack of anonymity may prevent young people from seeking treatment.

  • Stigmas associated with receiving mental health treatment in rural communities are often higher than in urban settings.

  • There is a shortage of mental health professionals in schools or who specialize in working with teens, and cultural competency can also be an issue.

  • Cost is another challenge for families of teens seeking mental health care, as well as limited transportation options.

  • Schools often have limited community mental health referral resources to offer their students and the resources available often involve a difficult intake process or have excessive waitlists.

Our innovative online mental health services can provide anonymity for young people who may feel uncomfortable seeking help in person. In addition, our services are easily accessible to families in rural areas, where access to mental health care can be particularly limited. We provide personalized services and culturally sensitive care for teens, so that they can receive care that meets their unique needs. Finally, our services are affordable and can help families overcome the financial barriers to getting their teens the care they need. By working with Equity Associates, schools and families can provide young people with the support they need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
