Child and Family Outpatient Services

With a multidisciplinary approach to treatment that promotes optimal mental health and functioning, child and family outpatient services include psychiatric, psychotherapeutic, and psychoeducational treatment for children, adolescents, adults, and families. Treatment is primarily office-based and provided through individual and family counseling, psychiatric assessment, and psychotropic medication maintenance.

Child and Family Therapeutic Outreach Services

Child and family therapeutic outreach services provide intensive treatment using culturally competent, multidisciplinary, and community-based interventions for children and their families who present with severe emotional needs. Programs are designed to stabilize a child’s acute symptoms, improve family functioning, and assist families in connecting with needed support services. Provided in the home, services include individual and family therapy, as well as parent education and care coordination with schools and other providers. Treatment might also include psychiatric evaluation and medication management. The goal is to prepare the family for transition to outpatient therapy to achieve lasting positive outcomes.
