“Amy” is an amazing young lady who came to HCRS in 2007; she had been placed in residential school due to her uncontrolled behavior issues and inconsistent home life and had a State appointed legal guardian. With the help of HCRS, Amy was placed in more stable home environment with a family that she had already established a relationship with during emergency respite care. With natural supports and the supports from HCRS; Amy has been able to establish a safe and more consistent relationship between herself and her biological family; she has been able to maintain gainful employment; and just last year was legally appointed to be her own guardian. Amy started working part-time at a grocery store and a department store. In 2010, Amy successfully completed a 3 month internship as a front desk clerk. This internship opportunity really helped build Amy’s vocational skills and professional self esteem. Since this internship, Amy has flourished at work and socially.
HCRS’ Children, Youth, and Family Services has individual contracts with 28 schools to provide mental health, behavioral, and substance use services in the schools.
Based on the school’s needs, we can provide them with a Masters-Level Clinician who will work directly with the student as well as the teachers, staff, and parents to help meet the emotional and behavioral needs of the student in the school setting.
We can also provide the school with a Behavioral Interventionist who can work one-on-one with a high behavioral needs student in the classroom, following a behavioral assessment and plan.
All HCRS staff working in a school are supervised by Masters-level, licensed clinicians who are skilled in mental health and applied behavioral analysis.
