General Information About WRAP
Since 1997, WRAP, your connection to mental health in schools, has offered school-based therapeutic, skill-building, and supportive services in Douglas County Schools. WRAP employs full-time Master's Level Social Workers who are employed by Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center and licensed in the State of Kansas by the Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board. WRAP is available to ALL students in participating schools. Currently, WRAP is present in Liberty Memorial Central Middle School, South Middle School and both High Schools within Lawrence Public Schools. Starting in the Fall 2009, WRAP has been providing services in Eudora Elementary, Eudora Middle School, and Eudora High School. WRAP provides, within the school environment, people, ideas and tools that promote the emotional and social development of ALL children.
WRAP provides a wide range of services including, but not limited to: individual and/or small group counseling, skill building in response to discipline referrals, parent and family support, teacher support, crisis intervention, student advocacy, communication between school / home / community, linking families and children to available resources for social / emotional development and for academic support, assistance with after-school programs and activities, mediation, service to educational teams (SIT, SST, SPED, CARE), and educational and skill building groups (friendship, divorce, leadership, etc.).
We have additional summer program services including, but not limited to: promoting positive behavior and skills by connecting kids with community programs, individual and/or small group activities, and transition workshops to help prepare children for their move onto the next grade level and/or new schools.
WRAP gives ALL children extra help to succeed in school. There is absolutely
no cost for any WRAP service. WRAP is completely voluntary.
You can ask at any time for the WRAP clinician to cease
from providing services and support to you and/or your student.
Because WRAP clinicians are licensed clinicians, we are bound by confidentiality laws.
WRAP clinicians will keep all non-academic information about your family and your child confidential, except information they are required to report by Kansas Law.
***WRAP collects data on services we provide to examine the effectiveness of WRAP
In order to maintain absolute confidentiality, no children's or families names will ever be included, in our reports about WRAP. Periodically, we may also survey and assess students.
The survey results are used to guide our interventions with students. Aggregate results,
which are not tied to students' names, are used for program evaluation. Please note
that due to data collection and informed consent, we will ask you to sign a
WRAP Permission Form (please click here to view and download forms).
