Interventionist’s Corner

Hi, My name is Tenica Henry. I am the interventionist here at Niwot High School. This is my 7th year working here at Niwot. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have over 10 years experience working in schools. I am married with a 8 year old son and a 3.5 year old daughter. I enjoy hiking, camping, and traveling. I love spending time with family and friends.

A little about the Interventionist role: Interventionists work in concert with the school community to provide a variety of services including: mental health (e.g. danger to self or others and substance abuse assessments); school/community trauma response, networking, and collaboration; referral and follow-up to community agencies and coordination of community-based services offered on-site at schools; consultation and action planning with school staff for prevention and intervention efforts; psycho-educational support groups; youth leadership/empowerment program support; and classroom presentations. Typically, Intervention staff can provide even more time to work in-depth with students and families, than school counseling staff are able to commit given scheduling, guidance, and testing responsibilities.
