Daybreak’s evidence-based programs

Designed to meet the unique needs of every student, family, and school.

School-Based Teletherapy Programs

Evidence-Based Care

Our model treats students to a place of concrete improvement—symptomatically, functionally and behaviorally. The programs were developed by child & adolescent clinical experts and modeled on the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Universal Protocol, weaving in elements of Social-Emotional Learning.

Personalized Treatment

Every program is customized to each student, and can treat a broad range of mental health needs. We personally match our students to their therapist based on presenting needs, cultural background, language, and personal preferences. This is why 90% of the students we work with say we matched them to the right clinician.

Family & School Staff Collaboration

Throughout the student’s program, the Daybreak team meets with both families and school staff to provide updates and check-ins on the student’s progress, while respecting the fundamental confidentiality of the sessions.

Proven Outcomes

81% of students show symptomatic improvements as measured by GAD-7 and PHQ-9. And, 8/10 school staff report improvements at school.

Data-Driven Reporting

We provide detailed outcomes and reporting data in real-time as well as ongoing reporting from a dedicated account manager on measurements like utilization, student engagement, clinical improvements, and more.
