Austin Community Health Network (SFACHN) to provide mental health services to their families.

The Texas School Safety Center has recognized the district for two other programs or partnerships in the last year: the Prom Promise program - a student-led program to educate peers about the dangers of drinking and driving; and partnership with True to Life Ministries for Club Belay and Student Success Coaches, which provide mentoring and support services for students.

The SFACHN partnership, which was submitted in the category of “Collaborative/Community Partnerships,” was selected and is now posted as a spotlight on the TxSSC website and shared across the state on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Below is summary as it appears on the School Safety Spotlight Program website.

Stephen F. Austin Community Health Network and Brazosport ISD
Since 2015, the Stephen F. Austin Community Health Network (SFACHN) has partnered with Brazosport ISD. In 2018, SFACHN began providing five school-based health centers offering mental health services. These on-site centers remove the transportation barrier that some families face when seeking services, and no student is refused services based on the inability to pay. The collaboration enables school counselors to act proactively and make referrals that are preventative in nature. A third-party release form signed by the parent of a student attending SFACHN counseling sessions allows school counselors to communicate with the licensed professional counselor about how to best support the student’s treatment plan with the goal of helping individuals before a crisis occurs.
