Family Based Mental Health



Family Based Mental Health (FBMH) is our most intensive service, comprised of two-to-three in-home sessions per week for 32 weeks. Services are offered to families with children who have significant behavioral problems, who have not shown progress in less intensive services, and who are at risk of out-of-home placement or who are returning from an out-of-home placement.
Our FBMH clinicians receive additional training in order to serve families with multiple mental health needs.

In order to be eligible for FBMH, the primary recipient must be a child or young adult, ages 5 to 21 years, who has an existing DSM-5 diagnosis. A recommendation for FBMH must be provided by a psychiatrist, psychologist, or primary care physician. Eligibility is dependent on the Medical Assistance eligibility of the person being referred.


Family Focused Solution Based



Family Focused Solution Based (FFSB) is a six-month service consisting of approximately two sessions per week. The recipient of the service can be a child residing with a parent or guardian or who has an intention of reunification or adoption, or the recipient can be a parent who has children in his/her care. The primary recipient must have a suspected mental health diagnosis.
Our FFSB clinicians receive additional training in order to serve families with multiple mental health needs.

FFSB can be recommended by a physician, but this is not required. Referrals are accepted from outside providers as well as from families directly. Eligibility is dependent on the Medical Assistance eligibility of the person being referred. FFSB is offered to Allegheny County residents.
