Children's Mental Health


The Children's Mental Health Division and Case Management Services help children who have severe emotional and mental health disturbances. This is done in a culturally sensitive manner with case managers helping the child and family to:
  • Develop a treatment plan and a crisis plan.
  • Provide information about and referral to community resources.
  • Create a supportive team of family, professionals, and community members.
  • Assist parents in advocating for their child's mental health needs.
Earlier interventions may reduce the need for more intrusive and expensive interventions later. Service availability is dependent upon the needs of the child. In all cases, third party reimbursement is sought before County funds are utilized.

Services are available for both eligible and non-eligible children.
