In response to the current needs of students and families as they resume in-person and hybrid schooling, Astor Services for Children & Families has launched a back to school screening initiative. The program is available completely free of charge to schools in the Bronx and aimed at helping children from Pre-K to grade 12.
This screening initiative helps schools address the current needs of students and families as they return to school, focusing on parenting stress, behavioral health and children’s and families’ overall well-being. Social and economic factors including food insecurities, housing, access to medical care and to technology are all factors that can impact mental health.
