Through our team of licensed professionals, YAS provides the highest quality of Community Based Behavioral Health Services. These services, offered in Franklin County, are currently delivered through Telehealth (phone and video). We anticipate providing modified in-person services in the community (outdoors) in the near future. We meet you where you are!
The overarching philosophy of YAS’ Community Based Behavioral Health Program is to promote the recovery and resiliency of persons with behavioral challenges or mental health issues through prevention, education, and support services. The goal is to assist the client in developing skills that promote socially appropriate functioning in family, community, and academic settings, following the recovery model of healing.
We provide easy access to faster, simpler, effective and more comprehensive behavioral health care by having in-agency psychiatric services, including medication management.
Please note we do not accept psych only referrals for clients receiving services with other entities.
Referrals to our Behavioral Health Services often arise out of behavior management issues in the classroom as well as other needs that present when children acclimate to school and other life stressors.
