Community-Based Mental Health Wraparound Services

The state of Indiana has several programs for children and youth with serious emotional problems that allow your family to receive services in your home and the community. These are family-driven programs in which support services are "wrapped around" the family. You can get this help from one of three programs: Children's Mental Health Initiative (CMHI), Children's Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW), or Family Preservation. These are voluntary programs in which you choose to participate. The goal of Wraparound is to help you keep your child at home and your family intact. You will identify your child's and family's strengths and needs. Then, you will get help finding support to meet those needs.

Please get in touch with our Access Site Coordinator at 260.484.4153, ext. 2078, or by email to inquire about these programs.

Family Preservation

When the Department of Child Services (DCS) substantiates one or more incidents of abuse or neglect, it may be possible for children to remain in their homes if parents agree to participate in the DCS Family Preservation wraparound program. Crossroad provides Family Preservation services to families in Allen, DeKalb, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, and Whitley counties. Please contact our Access Site Coordinator at 260.484.4153, ext. 2078 or by email to make a referral.

Who’s Eligible (CMHI & CMHW)?

  • Your child must be at least age six and under age 18 at the time of application.
  • Your child must meet the criteria for two or more DSM-V diagnoses (subject to several exclusions).
  • Your child must need intense services and achieve a minimum score on the qualifying assessment. Crossroad's Access Site Coordinator administers the no-charge evaluation to determine the level of need and the intensity of service required.
  • Your child must be eligible for Indiana Medicaid, OR the family must have trouble accessing services because insurance will not cover the services' cost.

The State of Indiana selected Crossroad as a coordinator and service provider for these programs in Allen County. The Access Site Coordinator at Crossroad will help determine if your child qualifies for one of these intensive programs.
