CTSS is designed to help children under the age of 18 with mental health, emotional, and behavioral issues.

CTSS activities take place in the child’s home and the community.
The social and emotional development of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers is important, and so are the relationships they have with their caregivers. ECMH services for these children (ages 0-5 years old) and their families focus on enhancing the connection between young children and their caregivers.
Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a great opportunity for families with young children (ages 2-7 years old) whose behaviors are difficult to manage. Families participate in weekly sessions that provide training for parents on how to manage children’s behavior while improving their relationships with their children. PCIT has been successful with oppositional/defiant problems, aggressive behaviors, Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder (ADHD), severe temper tantrums, the impact of abuse/neglect, and exposure to alcohol/drugs before birth. PCIT requires a 12–14-week commitment to 1 hour-long sessions per week.

HDC outreach centers offer persons with mental health disabilities the opportunity to be part of a social club, making friends and learning new skills. Outreach centers use a consumer empowerment model, integrating consumer-led activities, socialization, community outings, games, music, and support groups with the more traditional staff leadership. While these centers are not treatment programs, they work closely with staff from other HDC CSP services to assist consumers with vocational, housing, and psychotherapy needs.
