Since 2001, Gateway's Go2U School-Based Counseling program is one of Alabama's most effective solutions for student mental health and academic achievement. Appropriately named “Go2U School-Based Counseling,” Gateway provides evidence-based mental health therapy to students in local schools. Our full-time therapists work hand in hand with school officials, counselors, teachers and parents to identify and treat mental health needs. The results are game changing for families, schools and communities:
- 77 percent of teachers see improvements in classroom behavior and student learning abilities
- Student grade averages increased six points in one quarter
- One Woodlawn resident said, “I have seen how Gateway school counseling is not only transforming families, but also my neighborhood."
