Children & Youth Services

Our treatment team consists of the psychiatrist or advanced practice nurse, community support specialists, nurse care managers, and therapists when needed. Services may be coordinated through a community support specialist assigned to work with the youth and family. The community support specialist meets often with the child and the family to assist them and provide support so the young person can function well at home.

Community support specialists work with the family to develop and implement a treatment plan. They also link families to other services available in the community, such as: respite care, treatment family home, residential treatment.

Evaluation - A mental health professional conducts an assessment to determine service needs for children ages 5-17 years of age. From this evaluation, referrals may be made for services, such as: community support, medications, therapy, admission to inpatient facility, other community services.

Counseling/Therapy - Counseling may be provided by a therapist to help a child reduce behavioral symptoms and maximize strengths. Individual therapy involves the counselor meeting with the child/youth alone to reduce behavior problems and set goals for the young person. Family therapy involves the whole family.
