How to Access Services
BPA Health makes accessing services through the SFAP simple and easy for students and families of MCS. A quick phone call to BPA Health to initiate services is the first step: 833-935-3816
Students who are under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian’s consent to access services before they can be authorized. The parent or legal guardian will contact BPA Health’s team to consent to services and the BPA Health team will take care of the rest including providing a referral to a counselor in the student’s area or to a counselor available for secure, confidential video counseling.
