Community-Based Wraparound Programs Provide Help for Hurting Kids
Indiana has several programs for children and youth with serious emotional problems that allow your family to receive services in your home and the community. These are family-driven programs in which support services are “wrapped around” the family. You can get this help from one of two programs: Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) or Children’s Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW). These are voluntary programs in which you choose to participate. The goal of the programs is to help you keep your child at home and your family intact. These programs are about you and your child. You will identify your child’s and family’s strengths and needs. You will get help finding support to meet those needs. To inquire about these programs, please contact our Access Site Coordinator at 260.484.4153, ext. 2078, or by email.
- Your child must be at least age 6 and under age 18 at the time of application.
- Your child must meet criteria for two or more DSM-V diagnoses (subject to several exclusions).
- Your child must have a need for intense services and achieve a minimum score on the qualifying assessment. The no charge assessment is performed to determine the level of need, and the intensity of service required.
- Your child must be eligible for Indiana Medicaid, OR the family must have trouble accessing services because insurance will not cover the cost of services.
Crossroad has been selected by the State of Indiana to serve as an Access Site, coordinator, and service provider for these programs in Allen County. The Access Site Coordinator at Crossroad will help you determine if your child qualifies for one of these intensive programs.
