Mental Health Programs
Stanford Sierra Youth & Families’ Prevention Wraparound services literally “wraps” youth and families with comprehensive care to help keep children/youth safe and at home, in school, and out of trouble. The program is uniquely designed to address the needs of youth and families who have come to the attention of the child welfare or juvenile justice departments and for whom early intervention will prevent them from being removed from their home and placed in a more restrictive and costly setting (i.e., group home placement, hospitalization, or youth detention). Services are provided to children/youth living at home and extended to the entire family with an emphasis on permanency, safety, and well-being.
Our school services, available statewide, provide therapeutic interventions to students both in-person and in virtual environments. We provide individual and group services and consult with teaching staff on managing difficult behaviors in the classroom setting.
Therapeutic Behavioral Services
A Brief Intervention for Youth and Families that Leads to Improved Outcomes
We provide effective, targeted behavioral interventions for youth with intense behaviors that are putting them at risk of losing their current placement or being hospitalized. The behavior analysts identify triggers, teach the youth coping strategies, and support the caregiver to manage the behaviors so that the youth is able to remain in their home setting.
This program literally “wraps” youth and families with comprehensive care to help keep youth safe and at home, in school, and out of trouble. Young people and their families gain the support and guidance to help them remain at home or transition safely to a permanent family. The program combines a family-centered, strength-based, needs-driven, team-driven approach with individualized and wellness-focused interventions. Our approach is comprehensive and outcome-driven — a sometimes unconventional response to complex family needs to ensure the best outcomes for youth.
