We talk a lot about working in schools. 



Because working with children and families in schools removes so many barriers to care including scheduling conflicts, transportation, and stigma.  

Also, all across Connecticut (and beyond!) schools continue to reach out to us to see if we can help them better serve their students.  Specifically, teachers and administrators are turning to Clifford Beers to better understand the impact of trauma on health, behavior, and academic performance.


Trainees report that Clifford Beers trauma training prepares them to understand, recognize and address trauma in their students.  

Clifford Beers provides mental health clinical and support services to students and families in 11 area schools.  Faculty and administrators in these school may also have received trauma training from us.

Presently, the schools we serve are:

Elementary and Middle Schools

  • Bishop Woods Architecture and Design Magnet

  • Clinton Avenue School

  • Fair Haven Pre K - 8 School

  • Lincoln-Bassett Community School

High Schools
