For almost 20 years, we have partnered with local school districts to provide mental health services to support students academically, emotionally and behaviorally, within the school setting.
We currently serve:
- Akron Public Schools
- Barberton City Schools
- I CAN Schools
- Imagine Schools
- Norton City Schools
- Tallmadge Schools
- Wadsworth City Schools
- Woodridge Local Schools
Our therapists and community psychiatric support treatment (CPST) providers meet with individual students on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis, as needed. We integrate with school processes, staffing and schedules to effectively support the children, resolve conflicts and engage families.
If additional psychiatric help is needed, we provide it at our outpatient clinic at the Vassel Center.
We help children and adolescents who struggle with:
- Alcohol, drug and other addictions
- Anger management
- Concentration issues/ADHD
- Domestic violence
- Family/life adjustment
- History of trauma
- Mood disorders
- Poor self-esteem
- Relationship issues

PCS is the strongest connection that struggling students and families have between home and school. Case management is a huge asset for these children.
When I have nobody to talk to about my problems I can come talk to my counselor.
Would not be able to do my job without this support in place!
Our PCS staff members are fantastic! They communicate with staff and parents constantly and provide much needed support to students!
