Comprehensive support for children, adults and families.

Our educational, after-school and residential programs help children and adults overcome negative behaviors and mental health issues. We strive to provide tools and resources that lead to fulfilling, productive lives.

Crisis Stabilization Unit

When youth experience a traumatic event or recurring feelings of depression, hopelessness or anxiety, a crisis cycle may develop that puts them at risk of being removed from their family and community. Our Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) is here for youth and their families when life circumstances become too tough to handle.

An eight-bed residential CSU on our campus supports youth ages 5 to 17 who are experiencing a mental health crisis, offering short-term placement as well as non-residential day programs. The CSU operates in partnership with Richmond Behavioral Health Authority and the Region IV Community Service Boards. It is the first facility of its kind in Central Virginia.

The majority of youth served by the CSU are diverted from costly hospitalization.

Mobile Crisis Stabilization

Mobile Crisis Stabilization is a community-based, short-term mental health service for non-hospitalized individuals of all ages experiencing an acute crisis of a psychiatric nature. The service provides clinical support to those at risk of hospitalization and/or admission to a residential treatment facility. We also mobilize the resources of the community support system, family members, and others for ongoing rehabilitation and recovery.

We operate through a trauma-informed approach. Strength-based and person-centered, this approach highlights clients’ resilience, capacity to problem-solve, and ability to engage in post traumatic growth. Our clinicians use evidenced-based interventions with emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and skill development to avert future crises. Services may be provided in the client’s home, the home of the client’s family or primary caregiver, or other community-based programs licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.

Therapeutic Day Treatment & Intensive In-Home Services

After-school and during the summer, we provide Therapeutic Day Treatment for children with a diagnosed mental illness related to behavioral issues. Activities take place in a fun and friendly environment where positive behavior is met with positive reinforcement. Treatment plans are designed to best meet the needs of the child and family.

Services include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Psycho-educational therapy

If a child is at risk of being removed from their home due to serious behavioral issues, we offer Intensive In-Home Services. We work with families to develop an effective, positive behavioral management system at home that stops destructive behaviors. Our In-Home clinicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Mental Health Skill-Building Services (MHSB) enable individuals to achieve and maintain stability, independence, and success in the home and community. Our services help those with emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues develop effective daily living skills and improved communication in order to function the least restrictive setting.

Intensive Care Coordination

Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) is a highly individualized, family-focused process for families with youth ages 5-17 who are at risk of out-of-home placement due to severe emotional, behavioral or mental health issues. The ICC approach is unique in that the family leads the process by voicing needs, making choices, and building strengths in a safe, collaborative environment. Our primary goal is for youth and families to define specific objectives and work towards them together.

ICC gathers a team of individuals chosen by the family to help them create a network of support, develop an action plan, and reach their objectives. This process has demonstrated positive outcomes for keeping families intact.
