For Children & Families
Professionals will work with you to decide which services and providers are most appropriate for your needs. This includes determining your eligibility, since many programs have their own eligibility criteria.
Some of our programs, services and resources:
Home-Based: This is an intensive program reserved for you and your child should you require services that require a comprehensive array of mental health services. These services are provided by a team and are short in duration. To be eligible, patients must agree to a minimal level of service in their home.
Infant Mental Health Services: Home-based parent-infant support and intervention services are offered when a parent’s life circumstances or the characteristics of the infant threaten the parent-infant attachment and, by extension, the child’s social, emotional and cognitive development.
Case Management: These services are provided to assist families in gaining access to needed medical, social, educational or other services. They include:
• Planning, using family-centered planning principles
• Developing an individual plan using the person-centered planning process
• Linking to and coordinating with other services
• Assistance with access to entitlements and/or legal representation
• Coordination with health care and other services
(services & resources continued)
Child Therapy: Therapy can help prevent behavioral issues, improve self-control and assist in emotional adjustment, helping a child function more appropriately in relationships and social situations.
Wraparound: This highly individualized planning process is facilitated by specialized coordinators. A Child and Family Team, with members determined by the family, develops the highly individualized wraparound plan.
‘Just in Time’ Child Psychiatrist Consultation
We partner with the University of Michigan (UM) in the Michigan Child Collaborative Care (MC3) Project to improve access to child psychiatric care.
Through the MC3, pediatricians, family practice doctors, and nurse practitioners may receive “Just In Time” (within two hours) phone and email consults with a UM child psychiatrist, including specialty areas such as autism, thought disturbance, maternal-infant, and others. The child psychiatrist may also complete a telepsychiatric interview with the child. Quick access to a care coordinator helps connect children with local resources of child psychiatrists.
This collaboration provides much greater access to specialists in our rural area.
