Our Goal
It is our goal to assist youth to remain in their homes, schools, and communities by addressing their individual mental health needs in the least restrictive environment, accomplished by various treatment interventions in the context of safe, trusting and nurturing relationships.
School Based Programs

Children’s Therapeutic Support Services (CTSS) school based program is a counseling program consisting of skills training, counseling, and therapy for students with emotional/behavioral difficulties.  A diagnostic assessment will be completed which will determine needed services such as:

Individual Therapy
Group Therapy
Family Therapy
Individual Skills Training
Group Skills Training
Family Skills Training
Crisis Assistance

An individualized treatment plan is developed for the student and family, which is culturally
sensitive and addresses family concerns. The goals set within the treatment plan are measured
for success and once the child reaches consistency in completing these goals, they then
graduate from the program.

The individual and group therapy and/or skills training are provided during the school day, while the family contacts may be held in the school or home outside of regular treatment
hours.

Commitment by the parent(s) for these services is required to ensure that parents are informed of their child’s academic and treatment progress.

Transition plans are developed individually based on the student's needs.

During the summer we also have a program for students to participate in groups, independent
living skills, and fun field trips!

The program provides a safe and nurturing environment where the student can examine their difficulties and make corrective changes. Skills are taught in:

 
Anger Control Independent Living
Problem Solving Conflict Resolution
Decision Making Communication
Self-Esteem Stress Reduction
 
The subject matter is introduced primarily through the modalities of skills training groups and/or group psychotherapy. The skills are then generalized and reinforced in the academic setting. The cooperative effort of the therapeutic and educational staff ensures that the student is both learning and using these skills.
  In-Home CTSS
 

An individualized treatment plan is developed for the student and family, which is culturally sensitive and addresses family concerns. The goals set within the treatment plan are measured for success and once the child reaches consistency in completing these goals, they then graduate from the program. Once the child and family reaches consistency in completing goals, then services are discontinued. 

In-home CTSS services provides individual and family skills training.  In-home staff work with children and families to recognize and utilize effective skills.  The goal is optimum family functioning preventing out of home placement. 

  Referrals
 
Anyone can make a referral to the CTSS program. The majority of referrals are made by county
mental health case managers, school administrators, academic case managers, and mental health professionals.

Please visit this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqSBWEjRggs to help promote good mental health for small children. One of my most heartwarming responses came from a colleague in Boston who works with juvenile offenders.  He said that the video got him thinking and may change the way he works with some of the kids.
