Maquoketa Valley Community School District is excited to announce a new partnership with Life Connections, a Mental Health & Behavioral Health Service Agency. Life Connections will provide a Licensed Therapist who will be based out of our district three days per week. Any student may be seen for therapy, during school hours, through either their health insurance or the district’s contract with Life Connections. If you feel your child is struggling with symptoms of depression, anxiety, inattention, hyperactivity, self-harm, eating disorders, anger issues, grief of a loved one, low self-esteem, trauma, or other life stressors or adjustments please contact Ariel Brown at 715.630.1381 or a.brown@life-connections.org to discuss starting therapy services. In addition to individual counseling, our school-based therapist will be assisting the district with other various mental health or behavioral health-related things such as conducting groups, consulting with teachers and support staff, professional development, and crisis management.
