Youth and Family Services

Through a partnership with Wayside Youth & Family Support Network we provide home-based services through The Children’s Behavior Health Initiative (CBHI), Department of Mental Health (DMH) and Department of Children and Families (DCF).  This collaboration increases the availability of high quality community connected mental health and child welfare services for children and families of Southern Worcester County.



This community—based program, funded through MassHealth under the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI),is available to youth up to age 21.  Services proved intensive therapy for a child and family to treat the child’s behavioral-health needs and to help the family support the child in the home.



A therapeutic mentor works one on one with a child or youth with behavioral health needs up to age 21 to focus on skill building needs in a community based setting.  Skill building may include (but is not limited to) assisting youth with improving social skills, implementing coping skills and learning more effective ways to communicate.  Therapeutic Mentoring is funded through MassHealth under the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative. (CBHI)



Families involved with the Department of Children & Families (DCF) may access these community based services, which assist families to access community supports and resources while addressing family, parent and child needs.  Common areas of need addressed include behavioral medication strategies, safety planning , anger managm3ent and communication.



Families with youth involved in the Department of Mental Health (DMH) may access services aimed at improving the youth’s functioning in order to remain living in the home and/ or community.  Services include connection to resources, coordination of care with providers, systems advocacy, skill building with the youth and family support.
