New Solutions Project

Overview

The New Solutions project is targeted to high need children as an alternative to psychiatric residential care. This is a community-based intervention with a high level of family involvement.

Some of the services provided by New Solutions include:

  • Crisis respite
  • Psychiatric Residential and Treatment Foster Care
  • In-home behavioral supports
  • Mentors
  • Short term assessment and stabilization placements
  • Wrap around facilitation

The New Solutions staff determine eligibility for this level of care based on a current mental health assessment, a standardized instrument called the Child and Adolescent Service Intensity Instrument (CASII), and a review of acuity factors, e.g., dangerousness to self and others, family stress level, and history of hospitalizations. Once eligible, New Solutions staff, referred to as “Wrap Around Facilitators,” facilitate the development of a Child and Family Team, which includes the child, their family, professionals working with the family and “natural supports” the family has in the community. The goal is to keep the child in the home if at all possible.

The Child and Family team develop a Care Plan that builds on family strengths and provides supports to meet individual family needs. The team also does a functional assessment of behavior and develops crisis plans to assist families in responding to challenging behaviors. Wrap Around Facilitators follow the progress of the children in care and provide planning to ensure that step down services are available in the community.
