Tri County CMO focuses on five different areas of need to assist your youth and family when you don’t know where to turn. That’s what we’re here for.
Youth served through a CMO have complex needs involving significant mental health and behavioral challenges. A CMO can assist the family in building their Child-Family Team and developing an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) which will address the unique mental health needs of the youth.
Youth referred to a CMO have complicated needs, including the possibility of substance-use challenges. A CMO can assist the family by building up supports in the community, connecting the family to local substance-use resources, creating a plan that outlines strategies for success, and more.
Developmental disabilities are severe, long-term problems that may be physical or may affect mental ability. A CMO can assist by best meeting the needs of children with I/DD that are not being met through school-related services, medical services reimbursable by health insurance or by other existing supports or services.
Youth served through a CMO can experience challenges with decision-making and judgment that can lead to the youth’s involvement with the juvenile justice system. A CMO can provide support to the youth and family during their involvement with the juvenile justice system, advocate on behalf of the youth, and create an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to identify strategies to support the youth staying out of trouble.
Many youth involved with a CMO experience multiple challenges with school or daycare programs and may have an individualized plan in place from the school district to address their educational needs. A CMO can assist by assigning a Care Manager to maintain ongoing contact with the school, collaborate with teachers, Child-Study Team members, and school staff to address the child’s needs.
