Children's Mental Health Services
What to expect
A qualified mental health professional will assess each child/teen to determine eligibility for services. The assessment will last around 2 hours. Children with Medicaid take priority. Based on the assessed level of care, appointments for treatment services will be set up, and a case manager will be assigned who will meet with you within 7 days to develop a treatment plan. If intensive case management is authorized, a specialized case manager will meet with you to begin Wraparound planning.
Every 90 days, the case manager must evaluate treatment progress in order to obtain authorization of continuing services based on medical necessity.
Our children’s skills trainers and therapists work with children and families in the school setting, in the home, and in the office. Parents and caregivers are key to helping children improve in functioning and reduce problem behaviors. We ask that parents and caregivers be available and active participants in treatment.
