***NEW 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR***

G-E schools will be offering School Linked Mental Health services through Fernbrook Family Center.  G-E is super excited about this new addition to our district.  This will give our students access to evidence based therapeutic intervention services that aid student's in managing their mental health needs.  Social work services within the school will be enhanced because Fernbrook will be able to work as a team to fully service our students with comprehensive mental health services.  If you feel your student needs a referral for these services or would like more information about these services provided to your student. Please contact Sheena Possin.
