Childlike Faith Family Services, (CFFS) Community Stabilization Services care is aimed at assisting individuals in a crisis to restore equilibrium to their biopsychosocial functioning and to minimize the potential for psychological trauma. Services are concentrated on providing communities who lack the service array to help adults, adolescents, and children experiencing behavioral, serious emotional, debilitating mental illness, or substance abuse related crisis. CFFS seeks to align with communities who still rely on psychiatric hospitalization or residential treatment during crisis service gaps. Listed components are to reduce and/or avert psychiatric hospitalization or residential treatment, increase juvenile diversions, allow fewer days out of the home, provide rapid linkage of treatment services, and achieve increased capacity of participant and family to avoid and handle future crisis.
Our focus will be the administration of one-on-one mental health care to non-residential or non-hospitalized persons with the minimum age of five years. This service is used to prevent and/or ameliorate a crisis that could ultimately result in an inpatient psychiatric hospitalization or residential placement if the crisis intervention/supervision had not occurred. Primary goals are to deliver short-term or ongoing mental health intervention provided in or outside the home, designed to evaluate, manage, monitor, stabilize, and support rehabilitation and recovery, consistent with the individual’s crisis/safety and individual service plan.
The goal is adherence to the crisis/safety plan including helping the family to recognize high risk behaviors, modeling and teaching effective interventions to deescalate the crisis, and identifying and assisting with accessing community resources that will aide in the crisis intervention and/or stabilization.
