On Tuesday, January 1st, Looking Glass’ in-school therapy program was featured prominently in The Register-Guard with a front page article highlighting the program’s growth and importance. Looking Glass now has therapists embedded in 30 schools in Lane County and has 5 more schools on a waiting list.
“Looking Glass therapists understand the importance of supporting the whole child and therefore collaborate with their students, families and school staff to provide consistent communication that helps everyone stay on the same page,” - Matthew Robinson, a counselor at Howard Elementary School, told The Register-Guard.
Brooke Cottle, the director of the Bethel District Health Center, told the paper, “the fact that Looking Glass therapists visit children at school is exactly the way mental health should be approached. It helps kids feel like they’re a priority. And having therapists immersed in the schools creates a certain level of trust and consistency that students need.”
