What We Do
We are deeply rooted in our commitment to providing support and care for children.
CRISIS INTERVENTION SERVICES
CRC’s on-call therapists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for Wood County children, youth, and their families in need of emergency mental health services when safety is at risk. We also provide a prompt response following community disasters or traumas.
We employ board-certified child psychiatrists who provide services to CRC clients in need of psychiatric assessment and medication management.
BEHAVIORAL HEALTH COUNSELING
CRC provides Behavioral Health Counseling for children, adolescents, and families in an individual, family, or group setting. Our licensed mental health therapists have specialized training to work with youth and families in developing greater understanding of their struggles, identifying individualized goals for treatment, and helping them learn to manage and cope with difficulties such as depression, anxiety, trauma, adjusting to life stresses and changes, grief, family and peer relationships and emotional reactions. Counseling services are offered in agency, school, and community-based settings.
CRC provides mental health services in all county school districts, including Bowling Green, Eastwood, Elmwood, Lake, North Baltimore, Northwood, Otsego, Penta Career Center, Perrysburg, Rossford, and WCESC PATHE program. Services focus on mental health needs such as anxiety, depression, trauma as well as overcoming emotional, behavioral and social barriers to academic success. School-based services also allow for close collaboration with school staff, as well as parents/guardians/families to more effectively address the needs of the whole child.
CRC Home-Based professionals assist children and families in their home, school and community. Home-based services include in-home and community support for parents/guardians and youth, education and support for parents about child development and promoting healthy child and family functioning, collaboration with other providers and referrals for additional resources.
The Partial Hospitalization program offers children and adolescents opportunities to participate in a variety of group activities promoting safe decision making, social and friendship skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, and positive coping strategies.
CRC’s Residential Service provides short-term care in a structured setting for children and adolescents whose behaviors may be a danger to themselves or others., or where the family system is in some other type of crisis. Staff help youth learn ways to cope with life stress, develop positive social skills, and practice age-appropriate responsibilities. We also work with the child and family to develop a plan to safely return home. We are not yet a Title IV-E agency for public children services, but are working on this process. Our Room and Board rate is not paid for by medicaid, but our treatment services are paid by medicaid and many private insurances. We are supported by our Alcohol Drug Addiction Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board for Wood County youth only. If you reside outside of Wood County, we can have further discussions with you.
CO-OCCURRING MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
CRC provides a comprehensive approach for adolescents struggling with mental health and alcohol or drug abuse. Our Co-Occurring Disorders program offers multiple levels of care to meet the needs of each teen including individual therapy and outpatient group counseling.
YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS IN TRANSITION
The YYAT program works with youth and young adults ages 16-24 to identify and develop a plan to achieve goals using their strengths, skills and supports. These services aim to improve positive relationships, develop strategies to cope with stress, build independent living and decision-making skills, increase money management and job skills and support in reaching educational goals. YYAT is provided within home, school and community locations.
The Prevention Team supports the healthy development of children birth through eight with programs for their families, caregivers, and teachers. CRC offers the Incredible Years Parent Program in both group and home-based formats, as well as ACT: Raising Safe Kids parent program. Parenting programs are free to parents in Wood County and provide childcare and meals for groups. Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation provides child or family-centered consultation that addresses factors that contribute to an individual child’s (and/or family’s) difficulties in functioning well in the early childhood setting. Consultants provide services to centers, public preschools, and directly to families. School-based prevention services include the Preschool Sexual Abuse Prevention Project (SAPP) for children ages 4-5 and Signs of Suicide (SOS) and Self-Harm for middle and high school students.
