Children’s Research Triangle (CRT), an organization providing clinical and school-based therapeutic services to children and their families, has been a partner organization of Michael Reese since 2011 when Michael Reese provided a grant that allowed CRT to expand its school-based behavioral health services.
CRT works with school site liaisons who refer students needing therapy and who support the coordination of scheduling students so CRT’s clinical therapists can provide therapy on-site in the school setting. This model provides regularity in contact and a safe space for a student and their therapist to meet. Dr. Linda Schwartz, CEO of CRT, has been working with students for over two decades.
Regardless of what the future looks like for Chicago Public Schools, Dr. Schwartz and her team are prepared to continue meeting the needs of their current and future clients.
