At Makki Psychiatry, our physicians work with families and school personnel to improve the mental health of students and reduce the barriers to mental health services they often encounter.
We conduct comprehensive assessments of students with an emphasis on understanding challenges to learning. Then we advise school personnel and parents about appropriate accommodations and special education and related services, including placements for students with psychiatric disorders, when indicated.
We also consult with school personnel to guide the development of school-based mental health interventions, create school policies, procedures, and environments that are conducive to the mental wellness of students and staff, and deliver effective school-based prevention programs.
The physicians at Makki Psychiatry are also available to consult with school leaders about general mental health issues and work with them to create a school environment that is conducive to the mental wellness of the entire school community.
