Success Story: Kavell Britten

Last year, after chronic discipline issues and struggling to focus in class, Kavell was connected with the Greater Springfield Full Service Schools site. Both Kavell and his mother were actively engaged in treatment, participated in individual and family counseling and followed through with suggestions and recommendations made by the therapist.

Today, Kavell is thriving academically and socially after receiving free therapeutic services through United Way's Full Service Schools.

Between September and February, Kavell and his mother worked with the therapist increasing Kavell’s coping and focus abilities and strengthening the family’s productive communication. Kavell continues to thrive in a supportive nurturing environment and is doing well, both academically and socially.

Access to health and human services, especially mental health services, makes a big impact on the lives of children and families. Full Service Schools helps improve lives by providing free, on-site therapy to allow students to recover from mental illness and transform their behavior. Because of Full Service Schools and other United Way initiatives, members of the Northeast Florida community, like Kavell, can lead lives of total health, mentally and physically.
