BILLINGS, Mont. - Billings Public Schools, Billings Clinic and Riverstone Health is teaming up to bring mental health services to school kids.
Dr. Eric Arzubi tells the school board an independent clinic will be created inside orchard elementary to provide counseling and psychiatric care for students, parents and family members. He says this model has been around for 40 years but our state only has two clinics like this one. Nationwide there are more than 2,000. It will open may 4th in Orchard Elementary. Dr. Arzubi said the new program will make receiving mental health care much more convenient. KULR8 will have more with Dr. Arzubi and Riverstone Health on the pilot program later this week.
