Family Based Mental Health Services

Family Based Therapy

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 outcome of therapy is to stabilize the family environment.

Clinical outcomes focus on educating families about the child's diagnosis, implementing positive behavioral plans and interventions in the home environment, and encouraging healthy family relationships within the household. 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.
