Enhanced Family-Based Mental Health Services

Program Overview

Girl RestingThe Enhanced Family-Based Mental Health Program aims to reduce the need for out-of-home placements and more intensive level of care, particularly inpatient hospitalizations. To accomplish this, the program provides a range of intensive short-term services that helps families better manage problems. We offer the youth and family additional support both in-home and in the community which may not be available in the traditional Family Based Mental Health service. The family is engaged with a team of mental health professionals who deliver care in multiple environments (home, school or community), 24 hours per day, and 7 days per week. The program team works in concert with other providers in the system of care to ensure continuity of services and access to an array of traditional and non-traditional services and supports for each family.


The Enhanced Family-Based Mental Health services include:

  • Assessing the family unit by identifying its strengths and needs
  • Providing flexible and individualized treatment/support to meet goals set by the family, child and treatment team
  • Integrating programming with other services the family may already be receiving
  • Helping the family develop a network of natural supports and community resources to provide long-term support after services end
  • Family support services aimed to help the family meet basic needs and to provide opportunities and resources for skill development
