Program Offering

Wraparound (BHRS) is a form of short-term therapy for children and adolescents that involves family participation. Treatment is specific to your child and family’s needs.

Services occur in the home, community, and school; the location depends on where a child is experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties.

Therapeutic interventions address inattention, defiance, depressed mood, anxiety, social difficulties, and symptoms of autism.

Wraparound is best for:

Families managing their child’s significant behavioral or emotional difficulties
Children and adolescents whose behaviors disrupt their daily lives
Caregivers with an interest in learning new strategies to help their child.

To begin, please call:
James Strowder, BHRS Referral Coordinator
(412) 661-1827, ext. 114

We understand how the struggle with emotional challenges can significantly impact a child’s educational achievement.

We promote a community of care through an integrated and early intervention approach to meet the educational, social, and emotional needs of children and their families.

Our reputation is built on providing a balanced approach to in-school behavioral health services and by reducing learning barriers through partnership with schools.

Highlights:

  • A therapeutic classroom model designed to support the culture of the school and support the needs of a wide variety of diagnostic groups
  • Assist by providing crisis services related to the assessment and treatment of at-risk behaviors
  • Promote closer connections to families by providing family therapy, informational talks, and parent support meetings
