As Mental Health Awareness Month comes to an end, we’d like to shine a light on a couple of our programs that address this need! CAC currently facilitates two mental health programs, the New Heights, Full Service Partnership for Transition Aged Youth (FSP-TAY) program and our Family Wellness program.

Our FSP TAY program provides mental health services to youth from the ages of 16 - 26. These services include individual/group rehabilitation, meetings with a case-manager to set treatment goals and to be connected to services in the community. Since COVID-19, the program has continued to provide Face-to-Face services (with precaution) while adding telehealth services to its repertoire to ensure continuity of care and to support clients in meeting their treatment goals. FSP-TAY program has moved their In-Vivo Cooking and Seeking Safety group classes to an online platform, which has been very popular amongst clients.

Our Family Wellness program provides mental health services to children, up to 5 years old, that are enrolled in our Head Start programs. Family Wellness has continued to provide mental health services through virtual and social distancing measures. During the pandemic, the program has provided care packages with tools to support coping skills, problem solving and emotions identification skills. Family Wellness will also be hosting group sessions for the children to increase social interaction/social skills and parenting groups will soon be developed to help support parents during this pandemic.

Although the designated month may be ending, it is important to note that Mental Health is an important issue that deserves our attention every month of the year!

As Foster Care Awareness Month comes to an end, we’d like to shine a light on our Enhanced Family Reunification (EFR) program that works to support fostered youth year around.

Typically our Enhanced Family Reunification program supervises and supports visits between children and youth in foster care and their families. Since COVID-19 resulted in restrictions on in-person contact, the program has established new ways for youth and their families to stay connected. We relay virtual messages and facilitate remote visits during this sensitive time.
