School Community Intervention and Prevention (SCIP) (www.lmep.com) is pleased to announce the addition of Natasha Gartin, LMHP and Melissa Tucci, MA, LIMHP, LADC of Williamsburg Behavioral Psychology Clinic, LLC as partnering therapists. Partnering behavioral health agencies and therapists generously provide free screenings for youth with suspected or existing behavioral, mental, or substance abuse disorders through a referral from a school’s SCIP Team. The free SCIP screening provides that critical first step in determining how to best meet a student’s behavioral and emotional health needs. Currently, 11 behavioral health agencies collaborate with SCIP.
