Child, Young Adult, and Family Services

Here to help with behavioral health support

Who we are as adults is greatly shaped by our experiences in our youth. Physical care, emotional support, genetics, social and community ties, pressures at school, and family relationships are all factors that can seriously impact health and family stability.


With our wide range of services, our goal is to help children, adolescents, and families manage and overcome the difficult challenges they may be experiencing.

Families are at the center of our approach

All families have unique needs. Our wraparound approach addresses those needs with a unified care plan and a solid support network. This approach puts the focus on keeping families together and healthy.

If there’s a gap or a barrier to care, our care managers can connect families with providers, hospitals, state agencies, faith-based groups, and other community-based services. These kinds of connections help families receive the quality care, social support, and other resources they want and need.

Our programs help deliver comprehensive support

We work with an extensive, multidisciplinary group of clinical experts, including certified youth and family peer specialists, to provide behavioral health solutions. Our wraparound programs help address a wide range of needs, remove barriers, and make care more affordable.

Third-party administration:

We serve as a third-party administrator for the State of California’s Children and Youth Behavioral Health Initiative (CYBHI) Statewide All-Payer Fee Schedule. This groundbreaking program — part of a statewide overhaul of mental health services — helps ensure increased access to mental health and substance use supports for every Californian aged 0-25, regardless of payer.

As the CYBHI Statewide All-Payer Fee Schedule TPA for this five-year, $4.7 billion program , we manage CYBHI’s provider networks, claims administration, and payment remittance. We are responsible for:

  • Practitioner credentialing.
  • Compliance and oversight.
  • Data management.
  • Validating and submitting claims.
  • Coordinating benefits and payments.

Custom care management for rising risk:

We use data to proactively identify children and young adults at risk for a mental health crisis. By stratifying these cohorts by level of risk, we deliver timely, developmentally appropriate, and evidence-based care interventions.
