North Polk School District

LifeWorks is happy to still be able to provide mental and behavioral health services to families amidst the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place in our state. All of our providers, including school-based therapists, therapists in both Ankeny and Des Moines offices, BHIS workers and our nurse practitioner are providing Telehealth services. These can take place through video or audio options and are simple to set up.

LifeWorks is excited to partner with the North Polk School District to provide school-based therapy services. Each school building has access to a licensed mental health therapist to provide counseling at the school building during the school day, allowing for more time to be spent in the classroom rather than traveling to appointments.

LifeWorks partners closely with the school, family, and community to ensure positive outcomes for each student. Issues that might lead to a referral include anxiety, ADHD, behaviors at school or at home, blended families, divorce, death in the family, depression, major life changes, self-esteem, bullying, healthy relationships, self-harm, stress or other concerns.

Referrals can be made directly to school guidance counselors, school social workers, or through our main LifeWorks office number at 255-8399.
