Hyland Behavioral Health receives $2 million to help troubled teens
Grant will go toward Hyland Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Programs
The St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund (CSF) board awarded $2,477,828 to Hyland Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Programs to help teens 19 and under in St. Louis County. The grant will be used to provide assessment and day treatment services to adolescents, which include psychiatric assessment and oversight, parenting classes to their parents, individual and family counseling, and aftercare case management to offer long term support. With the expansion of grant dollars, clinicians will be able to assist more families and engage youth who are less easily identified as having mental health issues.
In November 2008, St. Louis County passed a ballot measure which created a community children’s service fund to provide mental health and substance abuse services for children, 19 years and under in St. Louis County. The funds can be utilized in the following 10 service areas: crisis intervention services; home and community-based counseling services; individual, group and family counseling services; outpatient psychiatry services; outpatient substance abuse treatment; respite care services; school-based prevention services; services to unwed and pregnant teens; temporary shelter services; and transitional living services.
