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. In one year:
- 77 percent of teachers saw improvements in classroom behavior and student learning abilities
- Student grade averages increased six points in one quarter
