Behavioral Health - individual & group therapy, telemedicine, including: stress & anger management, anxiety, depression, trauma and relationships
Bertrille Hookfin, LCSW
Behavioral Health services are available at Grace King High School. Students can see a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in-person or via telemedicine for individual or group therapy. Students seen for school-based services don’t pay a co-pay and uninsured students are always welcome!
Access Health Louisiana (AHL) offers Behavioral Health services to students at Grace King High School. Grace King is one of ten schools where AHL offers health services in the Jefferson Parish School District. Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) Bertrille Hookfin sees students on campus. Telemedicine services are also available this year. Her office is located on the second floor of the high school library. 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. Hookfin by either calling the front office of Grace King High School at (504) 888-7334.
All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file to be seen at Grace King High 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. 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.
