Linkages To Learning

Linkages to Learning (LTL) is a comprehensive school-based prevention and early intervention program. In partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), Montgomery County Department of Health, Human Services (MCDHHS), and Family Services Inc., our staff assists families and students by connecting them to services and resources that will help them in school, at home and in the community.

All programs offer a continuum of mental health treatment services to children and their families directly in the school setting. Individual, group and family therapy, psychiatric evaluation and assessment, and psycho-educational services are available. LTL staff help families secure needed resources and navigate through the complexity of the social service.
