In Home Therapy (IHT)
IHT helps stabilize the families of children (ages 4 – 18) who are at risk of out-of-home placement or who are transitioning from psychiatric hospitalizations or residential facilities. The IHT team meets with the child and his or her family at least once a week over several months during the course of treatment.
Therapeutic Mentoring Program (TM)
Working in concert with other services, TM helps youth (teens and young adults) improve everyday functioning skills. A TM mentor meets with the client at least once a week for about three months to prevent an out-of-home placement or to successfully transition home from a psychiatric hospitalizations or residential facility.
Community Support Program (CSP)
Individuals with mental health and/or substance abuse issues can attend this voluntary program for three to six months. Intended to complement other services, CSP is flexible in supporting clients’ treatment choices. The program’s focus on building support helps reduce time spent at an inpatient facility.
Intensive Adolescent and Family Support (IAFS)
IAFS provides focused one-on-one clinical support for adolescents (ages 13 to 17) under the guidance of the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Adolescence is a turbulent time of life for anyone, but children from at-risk households tend to demonstrate low self-esteem, poor social skills, truancy, poor school performance, and mental health challenges. An IAFS clinician works closely with each participant, meeting three times a week over six months to provide support, advocacy, and mentorship.
