CSBBH is a comprehensive Mental Health program which serves children and adolescents who are experiencing serious emotional and behavioral issues. CSBBH is unique in that it is located within the school, while also having the ability to work with the child/adolescent and their family in the home and community. Service hours are non traditional and can include evenings, weekends, summer and holidays. CSBBH uses the team approach which allows for greater availability of staff to accommodate treatment needs. There is a CSBBH team member available by phone 24 hours per day/ seven days a week to assist caretakers with crisis situations.

The CSBBH program is accessed through a collaborative consultative process participated in by parents, school districts and community agencies. This process is designed to problem-solve social, emotional, and behavioral concerns. A Licensed Psychologist or licensed clinician will assess that CSBBH services are needed and a representative of Community Care Behavioral Health (CCBH) will also take an active part in the confirmation of service appropriateness. Individualized treatment plan goals are generated through this process and will reflect the information obtained. Authorization for services from CCBH is received within a short length of time and will generally remain valid for one year following the written order/assessment. In order to reassess changing needs, treatment team meetings are facilitated and treatment plans are updated every 6 months to identify progress the child is making
Who provides the CSBBH Team services?
CSBBH teams in each school include a Mobile Therapist (MT) and a Behavioral Health Technician (BHT). The MT is the team leader and is responsible for obtaining pertinent information related to the reasons for referral. He/she creates the treatment plan, provides direct treatment, and supervises the other BHTs. The BHTs provide direct, ongoing services in the home, school, and community. Since CSBBH utilizes a team approach, children/ adolescents and families have the opportunity to serve as active working members of the team.
The MT helps you to develop a crisis plan for home and school. They review this plan with the team on a periodic basis and answer any questions they may have in terms of how to implement it. Alterations to this plan can be made as circumstances change with the child/adolescent or within the home situation. A CSBBH staff member is available 24/7 by phone to assist in screening and creating a safe means of dealing with a Crisis situation.
