School-Based Youth Services Program

The School Based Youth Services Program is funded by the Office for School-Linked Services (OSLS) and is managed by Hunterdon Behavioral Health. The School-Based Program’s offices are located in the grade-level counseling services areas.

The program provides a comprehensive set of services to students including counseling for issues such as anxiety, depression, self-image, and stress, recreational and drop-in programs, and referral and linkages to community services on an appointment-only basis.

Students may request an appointment and services are confidential. However, after the initial contact, a signed consent form from a parent is needed if services are to be ongoing. If issues are school-related, School-Based staff will work with students and school personnel to help resolve these problems.

Since the program is administered out of the Hunterdon Medical Center, it is available year-round and operates when school is closed.

Referrals to the program can be made by teachers, guidance counselors, nurses, parents, self, friends, etc. Please contact the School Based Youth Services Program at 908-788-6401, x 3173 for further information or to make a referral.
