Caring For Our Community

GFHS at Gaston County Schools


GFHS works in collaboration with the Gaston County School System providing behavioral health care to students in participating elementary  schools. Services are provided by GFHS staff Licensed Therapists  (LCSW, LPC, PhD).

Our services include counseling related to: academics, development, relationships, anxiety, depression, substance use, behavioral concerns, pain, transition and more.

Students at participating schools must be enrolled in GFHS’ School Based-Health program to receive services.  Parents can save time by completing enrollment forms at home.  To view and print the enrollment pack in English, click   Enrollment Pack – English      For or Spanish, click  Enrollment Pack – Spanish
