I.M.P.A.C.T. Program

CCCHC and the local School Districts recognized the need for Mental & Physical Health Services for adolescents in Rural North Dakota. Accessibility being priority, a partnership was formed with the schools to create the I.M.P.A.C.T. Program, which stands for Integrating Mental Health Physical Health And Continuity of Care Together.

Our Mission

Enhance and improve the overall wellness of our children through the collaboration of Coal Country Community Health Center, local school districts, and the community.

  • Destigmatize mental health and substance use.
  • Advocate for students mental & physical health emphasizing that academic performance is directly affected by the student’s health.
  • Remove the barriers students face by providing services on-site for mental and physical health.

How it Works

Referrals may be made by school professionals, a primary care physician, the youth bureau, social services, public health, parents, or the students themselves to the I.M.P.A.C.T. Program Coordinator or your local School Counselor.
