Community-Based Services for Children & Families
Prairie View’s Community-Based Services team provides services to children and their families or guardians when a child has been determined to have a severe emotional disturbance (SED). Community-Based Services are available to those living in Harvey, Marion and McPherson counties.
Your child’s treatment team will help coordinate services, which may include:
- Targeted case management
- Community psychiatric support and treatment
- Attendant care
- Psychosocial rehabilitation
If your child is between the ages of 4 and 18, experiences SED and is at risk of inpatient psychiatric treatment, he/she can remain in the home and community. Services include wraparound facilitation, parent support and training, independent living, waiver attendant care, short-term respite care and professional resource family care. These services are determined with the treatment team to decide what is medically necessary.
To access these services, the child must have a qualifying SED diagnosis provided by a mental health professional and have funding through insurance, medical card or self-pay. There may be limitations depending on the child or your income.
Individual and family therapy, as well as medication services, are available.
