Wraparound care is an individualized planning process for care management that leverages the Child and Family Team and builds on a family's and community's unique strengths, values and resources.
Our Behavioral Health Home services support youth with chronic co-occurring behavioral and medical health issues and enhances the Wraparound Model of Care to integrate both medical and behavioral health care.
