Youth and Family Services

Our mission in the Youth and Family Services (YFS) program is to assist youth and their families who are impacted by emotional and behavioral challenges to achieve success and reach their ultimate potential. We strive to accomplish this goal by providing quality mental health and substance use treatment services through community outreach and collaboration, comprehensive assessments, accessible services, and evidence-based practices and treatment.

YFS recognizes that youth have the best opportunity for success when they live with supportive families in a community that is responsive to their unique needs and talents. Based on this knowledge, YFS works to educate and support families who are caring for a youth with emotional, behavioral and/or substance use challenges. Similarly, YFS works with other child serving agencies and community groups to provide education and resources to help increase knowledge and early identification of youth experiencing challenges. In addition to the services linked below, YFS has staff that work in the juvenile detention center and court services unit. We also work closely with local schools to support needs identified in that environment.

Youth and Family Services at Henrico Area Mental Health and Developmental Services relies upon a family systems model to provide treatment and support to youth and their families. Therapy services utilize evidence based practices , such as Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Adolescent-Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA).
