Access Health Louisiana (AHL) offers Behavioral Health services to students at Douglass Community School. Douglass Community School is one of ten school based health centers operated by AHL in the Jefferson Parish School District. Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) Leyton Orillion sees students on campus. Telemedicine services are also available this year. Her office is located in Room 1 of the hallway that runs along side 15th street and the play area. She offers individual and group therapy counseling sessions for stress and anger management, trauma, depression, anxiety, bullying or even relationships. Parents can request that their child be seen by Ms. Orillion by calling the front office of Douglass Community School at (504) 371-4651 or in her office at (504) 301-9023.
All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file to be seen at Douglass Community School for Behavioral Health services. Consent and enrollment forms are sent home at the beginning of the year; however, parents may sign their child up for services at any time during the school year. Digital consent forms may also be found on the right hand side of this webpage.
Co-payments are waived for all students and faculty/staff enrolled at our SBHC. Commercial insurances including Medicaid and Medicare are accepted. Students who are uninsured can also receive care with a consent and enrollment form on file with the health center. Any medications prescribed for your child may be filled through the Access Health Louisiana Pharmacy and delivered to your home. We also work with nearby Walgreens and CVS pharmacies and can have most prescriptions filled at a discounted rate.
If you have an emergency outside of school hours, please call 9-1-1.
Access Health Louisiana operates 19 school based health centers in eight parishes. To learn more about our successful program, click here.
“Hi, my name is Leyton Orillion and I have 17 years of experience as a social worker. I began my career in the medical setting – serving patients admitted to the inpatient psychiatric unit, and later transitioned to outpatient counseling with both children and adults. I have also worked previously in private practice. I look forward to working with the children at Douglass Community School by providing both individual and group sessions.”
Leyton Orillion, LCSW
Note: Requests can be made during the school year. If school is not in session, please contact another nearby AHL community health center for assistance.
