Family Based Mental Health

Family Based Mental Health is an intensive in-home program that provides structural family therapy to children and their families who are experiencing serious emotional and behavioral issues and are at risk for in-patient hospitalization or residential placement. Therapy is strength focused and a collaborative relationship between family members and the Family Based team. The Family Based team is comprised of a Licensed and/or Master’s Level Mental Health Professional and a Bachelor’s Level Mental Health Worker. The primary goal of therapy is to empower and support family members so that positive changes may be experienced and children are not placed out of the home. The Family Based team will primarily schedule sessions in the home 2-3 times per week. Sessions will be scheduled at the convenience of you, your family, and the Family Based team.

Family Based services is a voluntary program and can be authorized for up to an eight month period. The Family Based teams undergo 3 years of training through the Philadelphia Child and Family Therapy Training Center, Inc. to further enhance their clinical skills and better serve the needs of families. Finally, the Family Based program offers a 24 hours/7 days a week emergency contact to an on-call team member for crisis support.
