Community-Based Clinical Services

The Child Behavioral Health and Science Center is affiliated with the following community-based programs.

Children and Family Treatment and Support Services

We use a team approach to providing therapeutic services. The program includes these components:

  • Other Licensed Practitioner: Consists of three service components to families who meet the level of need: evaluation, counseling (both individual and family), and crisis management.
  • Community Psychiatric Supports and Treatment (CPST). CPST provides specific, measurable services to help children and families succeed in the community.
  • Family Peer Advocates (FPA): Provide supportive services to parents of children with mental health needs.
  • Caregiver/Family Supports and Services: Supports families receiving Home and Community Based Waiver Services. It offers educational, advocacy, and support resources. Our goal is to help you learn to access community services and activities independently.
