Improving Access to Mental Health Support for Rural Students


Cause for Concern: Limited Access to Health Professionals

The Challenge:

Kelseyville Unified School District (KVUSD) discovered a rise in mental health challenges following the pandemic shutdown. Being in a rural area, they had a unique set of challenges, one of which was limited access to health professionals.

The Right Tool at the Right Time

The Solution:

The district turned to Gaggle Therapy and Coaching services to alleviate accessibility issues for their students in an effort to treat them more effectively. Gaggle Therapy has proved to be a game changer for KVUSD students and families, particularly for those who had no access to counseling. Students who are in need can receive support almost immediately.

Students and Staff Reap the Benefits

The Results:

Eliminating barriers that traditional in-person therapy brings—like cost, insurance, waitlists, and availability of providers—the district was able to provide access to immediate help for struggling students.

“Before Gaggle Therapy, I couldn’t help every kid. I feel like now I can. I’ve got something for every kid and it’s well worth it. It makes sense financially and emotionally. I wouldn’t hesitate giving my recommendation for this program at all.”

Other Case Studies
