Community-Based Mental Health Services For Youth And Families

Craigwood’s Family and Community Support Programs (FCSP) respond to the mental health and emotional challenges of youth and their families, using any of the following services alone or in combination as indicated

“IFS” – Intensive Family Services
(including Parent Group Services)

IFS is offered in tandem with Craigwood’s Parent Group program. These two components provide support where conflict in the home is a serious issue and stability of the home is threatened. The Parent Group is a series of highly structured sessions over 6 weeks where parenting practices are strengthened. The group component is complemented by 6 weeks of intensive service, providing on average 4-6 hours per week of in‑home and in‑community support.
