Help for kids with behavioral/emotional needs

Who qualifies to receive this service?

Finding hopeKids and teens with a mental health diagnosis who need coordinated mental health services. Many times, kids in this program have experienced difficulties at home, school or in the community, and/or suffered abuse.

How do you help my family? 

Our goal is to help kids with behavioral and emotional challenges stay safely in their own homes and schools (when appropriate).

When you begin services, your family will have a dedicated case manager who helps you work through family challenges and crises, connects you with other local resources, and navigates complex systems to get your child additional services he or she needs.

Some of the many ways we can help your family:

  • Work with you to assess your child's needs
  • Create a personalized plan to help your family work through challenges and reach goals
  • Advocate for your child's mental health needs
  • Connect you with more in-depth services such as:
    • Individual, family and/or group counseling
    • Behavior analysis
    • Psychological or psychiatric evaluations
    • Medication monitoring
    • Mentoring

Where do you meet with my child?

We can visit your child at home, school, day care or any other appropriate location that's convenient for your family.

How can my family begin receiving services?
