Youth and Family Services
The Youth and Family Services program provides mental health counseling, at no cost, to uninsured children, adolescents and their families who may be experiencing mental health struggles or in recovery from an acute mental health crisis. After completing an initial clinical screening, the team will work to create an individualized treatment plan which may include one-on-one therapy, medication management, expressive arts therapy group education, and/or other services. In addition, each client will have dedicated care management services included which will aim to connect them to essential community resources in order provide comprehensive care. The program will also facilitate group education opportunities for parents and guardians. The goal is to empower well-being and recovery for both the youth and family by providing an array of critical support.
Sponsored by Central Florida Cares System, Inc. and the State of Florida, Department of Children and Families.
