Wraparound Services

Services provided to a youth who has multiple needs that cannot be adequately addressed by weekly outpatient services. A typical wraparound team consists of a facilitator, a clinician, and a Family Partner (a parent who has had a child in the mental health system) who work intensively with the youth and family to identify needs, to access natural resources and to support the student at school and in their home and community. These services can be therapy, case management, facilitated family meetings, mentoring, help in accessing alcohol/drug services and health services, whatever it takes to address the needs of the youth successfully. Wraparound services are also utilized to assist youth and their families in transition after a crises or hospitalization. One of our programs which utilizes this practice and philosophy is the Youth Empowerment Services (YES).

Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS).  As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
