How to Access Services
BPA Health makes accessing services through the SFAP simple and easy. A quick phone call to BPA Health to initiate services is the first step. It’s important to be aware that 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 at 1-833-935-3816 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.
Any minor-aged students contacting BPA Health to access services without a parent or legal guardian available to consent will be referred back to their school counselor so attempts to engage parents/legal guardians for consent to authorize services.
As well, family members of students wishing to access SFAP will contact BPA Health to request and initiate services. It’s that easy!
