Family-Based Mental Health Services in Erie and Warren

Family-Based Mental Health Services in Erie and Warren

Family-Based Mental Health Services is an intensive, in-home therapy for children and adolescents with qualifying behavioral health diagnoses including autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and their families. The service is provided in Erie and in Warren-Forest counties.

The outcome of Family Based Therapy is to stabilize the family environment. Our therapists focus on helping families understand their child's diagnosis, implement positive behavioral plans and interventions in the home environment, and encourage the development of healthy family relationships. Family goals are developed and supported following thorough assessments of the family. A comprehensive treatment plan is developed and monitored with the family and interventions are implemented by highly trained staff.

Family-Based Mental Health Services:

  • Involves a team of therapists offering Structural Family Therapy in the home two to five times a week.
