Youth are assigned an SBS Therapist and Interventionist. The Interventionist will provide active care coordination, case management, facilitate Child and Family Team meetings to help determine the most effective course of treatment, family support/resources, and may provide living skills to youth in order to help develop their social, emotional, and other vital skills. Therapists may provide either individual therapy, family therapy, and/or group therapy to help process the mental health concerns and facilitate the youth, family, and schools in supporting interventions to help the youth thrive.
