Family Based Mental Health Teams (FBMHTs)

Lackawanna and Susquehanna Counties

FBMHTs provide in-home, intensive, team delivered services to families that have children/adolescents (birth to 21 years old) with behavioral and emotional difficulties. The goal of the program is to assist families with maintaining the child/adolescent within the home and avoiding any out of home placements, such as psychiatric hospitalization, foster care, or residential treatment. The family is viewed as an integral part of the process and family involvement is highly encouraged.
