Children’s Full Service Partnership (CFSP)
The Children's Full Service Partnership Program assists children with serious emotional disturbances and their families by utilizing a strength-based, family centered approach. In addition to individual mental health interventions for the child, services are also provided to meet the needs of parents regarding their own mental health, substance abuse and domestic violence issues which impacts the family's/child's stabilization. Most services are provided in the field and services are intensive. Program staff respond to crises 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
CFSP also provides case management and linkage to community resources regarding housing, financial and health services. The program also offers psychiatry services. Clients generally need coverage from MediCal or Healthy Families, although there is a small amount of funds for children without coverage.
