Family Matters Mobile Mental Health provides intensive clinical and case management services to children and adolescents who are faced with significant mental health challenges, and/or traumatic life events, and their families living in southern Westchester County. Services are individualized, based on family needs and are wrapped-around the child/adolescent and his/her family. Services include family, group and individual counseling, psychiatric consultations, medication management, crisis intervention and prevention, recreation, respite, parent education and training and case management. Family Matters' team members work collaboratively with many community agencies and services, including the Department of Social Services and Probation and the Boards of Education in the communities. Services are mobile and are provided as and where needed. Staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Bilingual Spanish-English therapists are available.
Family Matters Care Coordination (through DOH Health Home Serving Children) serves children, adolescent and young adults who are faced with a wide range of significant mental health challenges, as well as medical conditions. Community-based services are provided and include advocacy, crisis work, recreation, referral, and collaboration and case management.
A specialty we have in both of these program is the ability to provide all of the above services to youth who are sexually reactive/aggressive and/or have been sexually abused and youth with fire-setting behaviors.
Family Matters team members acknowledge and appreciate the role of institutional racism’s impact on the lives of the youth and families with whom we work.
