Why Daybreak

When it comes to mental health care, one size does not fit all. That’s why Daybreak’s programs are designed for each student’s unique needs—with proven clinical and academic outcomes.

Proven outcomes

Your schools are successful when your students are. Our evidence-based teletherapy programs have proven to drive behavioral improvements, better grades, and higher attendance.

Full treatment cycle

Unlike other providers who offer short-term transitional care, our model treats students to a place of concrete improvement—symptomatically, functionally, and behaviorally—over the course of their 12+ week program.

Flexible for individual needs

Specific student subpopulations are at a higher risk of mental health challenges including youth who identify as  BIPOC, LGBTQ+, or are low income, living in rural areas, and/or experiencing homelessness. We have specialized sub-programs built for their unique needs.

Best fit with onsite teams

School-based teams love Daybreak because it allows them to quickly expand capacity and give more students access to high-quality mental health support. They can easily make referrals and it’s a mental health program that is highly utilized—not just a “check-the-box” solution.

Daybreak is one of the best things we’ve ever done and is our strongest partner in school-based mental health. They’re receptive to our needs and have filled a big gap for us. We can now provide services to our students when and where they need it.

One student in particular hasn’t had any discipline records since starting with Daybreak. I think this student has learned some emotional regulation strategies which help keep him out of trouble. Every student I have referred has formed a strong connection with their therapist.

Daybreak has done a lot for us in terms of connecting with our kids - we are so geographically isolated - without your team we wouldn’t be able to do half of what we do.
