Crisis and Emergency Services – Children
Children in acute emotional distress may be seen 24 hours a day at the South County Mental Health Center in Delray Beach, Florida.
Following an emergency screening and/or treatment of acute conditions, child clients may be referred to South County Mental Health Center outpatient services or to other appropriate service providers in the community.
Referral to inpatient treatment providers is also available based on the severity of the situation.
Children’s Case Management
The children’s case management team at SCMHC aims to reduce the risk of out-of- home placement by incorporating available community services for our child clients in the least restrictive, most appropriate environment.
Where appropriate, case managers work with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) staff, school personnel, and other community resources to ensure a comprehensive approach to the services provided for the child and family.
Psychiatric services for children include evaluation and access to the SCMHC medication clinic<LINK> and pharmacy<LINK>.
Children’s Therapeutic On-Site Services
This SCMHC program serves children aged 3 through 18 years who have been victims of abuse or neglect, or are otherwise in need of in-home support services.
The NAVIGATE Program provides Palm Beach County residents between the ages of 16 and 34 early treatment of psychosis. NAVIGATE is a Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) team approach that provides medication management, therapeutic education, family and peer support, assistance with education and employment goals and case management.
The NAVIGATE Program was developed with the support from NIMH and has been implemented at over 60 sites throughout the U.S. as well as in China, Canada, and Israel. The program is named “NAVIGATE” to convey our mission of helping individuals with a first episode of psychosis and their families to successfully find their way to psychological and functional well-being, and to access the services they need in the mental health system.
