Forward Bound is an intensive secondary emotional support class developed to meet the needs of a distinct population of students diagnosed with a serious mental illness who have been unsuccessful in previous school placements due to a history of mental health treatment resulting in repeated breaks in their educational programming. The program provides psychiatric services, including medication management, as well as student and parent education on coping with a chronic illness. In addition, Forward Bound uses school-based mental health counseling (individual and group counseling) and provides a supporting and structured environment that maximizes a student’s ability to successfully access a rigorous high school curriculum.
