Boys & Girls Keystone Law
On 1/19/16 NJ approved the Boys & Girls Keystone Law which allows children to request & receive mental health services at the age of 16 without parent consent by a Licensed Professional. The AtlantiCare Buena Teen Center will continue to encourage participants to allow us to involve parents in the counseling process. However, our Licensed Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Social Worker on staff are required to comply with the law. If you would like to view the law please look under the forms section below.
Spring Group Sign Up's
BRMS Youth Center
BRHS Teen Center
All groups rotate periods and days in an effort to reduce the frequency of a student missing the same class repeatedly. Students will also only be permitted to sign up for 1 group at a time as an additional effort to reduce the frequency a student is out of class.
In addition, teachers have the ability to refuse a student permission to leave class though the student will miss the opportunity to participate in the service by doing so. All participants require a program consent and can be referred for services though he/she must voluntarily agree to participate – wait lists and individual services are available for those students who miss the sign up time frame. Lastly, a group may be canceled and/or rescheduled for lack of student interest.
