Family Based Mental Health Services

The Family Based Mental Health Service (FBMHS) program at ACRP is committed to supporting the development of children and the integrity of the family. The needs of all the children within a family, not just the child who was recommended for FBMHS, are actively considered and included as part of the treatment process.

Blended Case Management services ensure that adults and children who suffer from a serious mental illness or emotional disturbance remain linked to available community resources.

Partial Hospitalization Program is the best of both worlds for young people with a serious mental health diagnosis.  This educational program allows children and adolescents to receive intensive psychiatric and therapeutic treatment while maintaining a traditional Monday – Friday school schedule.  Days are structured around a combination of education, group and individual therapy.
