Behavioral Health - Child
Brown County's Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit (CABHU) serves children, youth, and families who need more comprehensive or intensive services beyond traditional psychotherapy services available at outpatient clinics in the community. We provide case management, psychotherapy, and facilitate access to a variety of other community based services and supports for those who qualify.
Families must meet eligibility criteria and most of our programs require a referral. The majority of referrals we accept come from Child Protective Services, Youth Justice, inpatient hospitals, and the Crisis Center. Our Coordinated Services Team (CST) program accepts referrals from a wider range of sources including schools and health care providers.
CABHU services include:
- Case management to improve the provision of services to families in an integrated manner and assist families in overcoming barriers to participating in needed services.
- Monitoring and provision of temporary case management services for youth who are placed on 90-day settlement agreements and 6-month commitments following involuntary psychiatric hospitalizations
- Family therapy
- Individual therapy for children and youth
- Comprehensive assessments
- Consultation to staff in other areas of Human Services
CABHU is part of the statewide expansion of Coordinated Services Teams (CST), providing assistance with family-centered service planning and coordination of care for children who are involved in multiple systems. To qualify, children and youth must be involved in at least two of the following service systems:
- Mental Health
- Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA)
- Special Education
- Child Protective Services
- Youth Justice
