Children & Families

Children & Families

KFL services to children, known as Children’s Therapeutic Services & Supports (CTSS), are community-based services designed for children and adolescents, and their families to address behavioral and mental health concerns.

Children & Family Services are individual child, adult, or family psychotherapy, skills training and behavioral aide services for children, and Adult rehabilitative mental health services focused on improving parenting skills.

How does it help?

When children experience trauma or severe emotional disturbances, development of core life skills can be delayed. CTSS consists of time-limited interventions, intended to teach life skills that help:

  • Restore child development to normal
  • Help a child who is at risk of out-of-home placement to remain at home
  • Help a child achieve success in school when academic performance is impacted by the disorder

Parents with mental health conditions can receive ARMHS (Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services) targeted toward the impacts of their symptoms on parenting and family life.
