SWIFT: Students with Involved Families and Teachers: SWIFT is a strength-based program to support students with behavioral health needs. The SWIFT team provides behavioral health services to students and their families in school, home, and community settings. The team works closely with parents, other caregivers, teachers, and school staff to coordinate treatment supports.

Each student meets weekly with a youth skills coach to practice skills related to school success (e.g., managing emotions, following classroom expectations, study skills, friendship skills). The student’s parent meets weekly with a parent coach to problem-solve the home- and school-related needs of the student

The project supervisor coordinates the treatment team, provides support and problem solving to the school related to the individual student’s needs, and serves as a liaison to community agencies as needed.

Clients are served in school, home, community, and clinic settings. Most youth skills coaching occurs at school so that students can practice skills at school.

SWIFT services are paid for by the Oregon Health Plan. There are no out-of-pocket charges for treatment.
