 Community Wraparound Team

The Community Wraparound Team is a coordinated network of services that serves youth with serious mental health needs and their families.  These youth and families need support from many different agencies.  By creating partnerships among agencies, the Team is able to improve outcomes. 

Families and youth work in partnership with the agencies to obtain services and supports that are effective and evidence-based; build on the strengths of individuals; and promote the full potential of every youth by addressing their physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural, linguistic and social needs.

The goal is to return youth with severe emotional or behavioral problems to their homes and help those at risk of removal to stay in a home environment. The Community Wraparound Team helps youth and families function better at home, in school, in the community and in all aspects of life.

In the program, youth and their families participate in wraparound planning.  They are surrounded by a team of professionals that “wrap around” them.  With the family’s participation, the team agrees upon one treatment plan.   

 Services include:

  • Clinical intake assessments to determine the youth and family’s needs, strengths, preferences and goals.
  • Wraparound treatment planning to guide the youth, family and service providers in monitoring progress. The plan is reviewed regularly as needs change.
  • Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) to ensure that youth are served in the least restrictive environment that meets their needs.  (ICC is contracted by FAPT, the Family Assessment and Planning Team.)
  • Supportive counseling including the evidence-based practices of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
  • Family Partner Program to assist parents through outreach, resources, referrals, advocacy and support groups.
  • Child Mental Health Waiver enrollment including intake, Medicaid pre-approval and transitional services.
  • Transitional Services to return youth to the community or keep them with their families while providing wraparound support to help them be successful.

To be eligible for services, the Alexandria youth must be aged 7-21 with an IQ score of 70 or above. Youth must meet one of the following criterion: was diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance; is involved with Social Services or the Juvenile Justice System; is returning to the community from detention, a residential treatment program or a foster care placement.
