Behavioral Health Works Offers Teen Mental Health Check-Up
The Cherry Hill High Schools are committed to working with you not only to educate your children, but also to ensure that they reach their full potential outside of the classroom. To that end, we are offering parents of grades 9 through 12 at High Schools East and West the opportunity to have their teens participate in a wellness check-up called Behavioral Health (BH) Works.
BH-Works was developed by the Center for Family Intervention Science at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to address the need for comprehensive behavioral health screening. The program is free and completely voluntary and confidential.
Parents received an email the week of April 12, 2021 regarding this program. The contents of the email also are available online. Parents may sign up for the program through the Genesis portal.
More information about BH-Works is available at www.bh-works.com
