School Based Services

Meeting the Strategic Needs of our Nation’s Largest School Districts. For the last two decades, MCUSA has bridged the gap between the education and behavioral health community by collaborating and cross walking key strategic initiatives with leadership in the nation’s largest school districts to promote student access to social/emotional services, community and parent partnerships, and leadership development.   

As an EdHealth company, we make it our business to improve school systems. Understanding the needs within education environment, we specialize in engaging educators, children and families in sustained behavior changes that promotes longer, happier, more productive lives.

MCUSA has always been at the forefront of school transformation. More than 20 years ago, we started with AmeriCorps and Department of Justice school reform programs to designed to enhance national education student support services, finally expanded our scope to both student education and healthcare startgiic in

Why? We embrace the World Health Organization’s definition of health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Healthier people cost less and perform better, which is the value proposition we offer our clients.

The opportunity to improve well-being is vast

A Healthways study of the potential impact of health risk reduction and prevention for Medicare and commercial populations estimated 10-year savings beyond $2 trillion.

People with high well-being simply cost less. In fact, their medical costs are 20% lower than average, while people who report low well-being cost 50% more. Low well-being also hurts performance. One analysis found an almost $20,000 gap in productivity between surveyed employees with the lowest and highest levels of well-being.

Improving well-being in a substantive way across populations is a sizable challenge. Few companies have the resources and expertise to make it happen.

Healthways has what it takes

Then, we apply our comprehensive, highly configurable Well-Being Improvement Solution to keep healthy people healthy, mitigate lifestyle risk and optimize care.
