Southwest Family Guidance Center & Institute is contracted with Albuquerque & Las Cruces Public Schools to provide therapy services to Medicaid-eligible students in the school setting. This arrangement helps overcome barriers preventing students from accessing services, such as a lack of transportation and ensures they receive the necessary services. Therapists are at the schools regularly to see students, attend school Health & Wellness meetings, and consult with teachers and other school staff. Therapists also work with parents to engage them in treatment and keep them informed of the services their children receive.
Suicide & Crisis Assessments
Albuquerque Public Schools contract our agency to provide same-day suicide risk assessments to all students in the district who have suicidal ideation. Upon completion of the assessment, SWFGC provides recommendations to the family for follow-up services and communicates these recommendations to the referring school employee.
