Youth and Family Wellness Centers

The Wellness Centers are designed to integrate disparate services from a variety of funding sources and organizations to unify care coordination and service provision through one centralized program and location, a "one-stop shop" for wraparound services.

VCBH Wellness Centers are focused on enhancing existing county partnership with school-based programs, to expand access to mental health services for children and youth, including campus-based mental health services, and to facilitate linkage and access to ongoing and sustained services. Through both on-campus programming and community-based partnerships, students will receive coordinated health/mental health and other support services to maximize student engagement and success, provide information, community resources, and linkages to mental health services.
