Continuum of Care for Youth

Community Psychiatric Support

Youth Community Psychiatric Support Services are provided to youth, ages 6 to 21 that are having severe emotional and/or behavioral challenges in their home, school, and in their community. The youth require a higher level of care than traditional outpatient services to assist them in recovery.

  • Providing community based care for youth and families through home based and school based services.
  • Collaborating with other South Community and external providers, family members, or anyone who is involved in the youth’s treatment
  • Assessing client ongoing needs and reporting to other team members
  • Advocating for youth and families
  • Education and Social Skills Training
  • Referrals and linkage with community resources

To Whom It May Concern:
I am a parent of a child with special needs. We have been involved with South Community for many years. It is a partnership that I have come to rely on as an integral part of my son’s support system.

The summer program that South Community has in place is an awesome program that provides a wonderful opportunity for many kids at risk, who otherwise would be left out of a truly adventurous experience. READ MORE >>

I honestly do not know what I would have done without South Community. It has helped me so much in rebuilding my life. I went from living at home with my mother for financial reasons, and also severe depression, to having a place of my own and a job!

Thanks to South Community, I was able to get the therapy I needed. I was also able to obtain a caseworker, Lynn Wynstrep. Lynn helped me get my life back in order. READ MORE >>

To Staff of South Community:
Thank you all for a wonderful training year. You guys were a great supportive staff to work with. I felt like I was part of the team here, and I appreciate everyone for helping me with anything I needed throughout the year.

I know that many agencies talk about having a recovery focus, but the staff here truly implements it. I noticed it and my clients noticed it. From the front service desk to the providers in the back, there is an emphasis on client care. READ MORE >>
