Service Details


Children's Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) is a flexible range of mental health and behavioral services for emotionally disturbed youth and their families. The services are for youth who may need higher levels of service than standard outpatient therapy.

CTSS services aim to help children:
* Restore abilities that had been lost,
* Gain coping skills and self-management tools to manage symptoms and related stress,
* Develop abilities and skills that are typical for youth of the same age without mental health symptoms.

Specific services provided to a youth and their family are based on:
* Family needs,
* Family culture,
* Availability,
* Model or type of services offered in the area.

CTSS services can be basic community-based therapy services, such as in a home or school. They can also be more structured and focused intensive site-based services, such as day treatment. For families with complex needs and multiple providers, services must be coordinated with other providers or agencies working together.

CTSS services may include (depending on need and availability):
* Therapy - individual, family, and/or group psychotherapy
* Skills training - individual, family, and group help to learn social, coping, communication, and/or daily life skills
* Mental Health Behavioral Aide (MHBA) - one-to-one service that helps youth manage behavior problems and symptoms at home or school
* Crisis Plan Development for the child and family
* Children's day treatment
