The family advocate will call you before your appointment to explain the process, will meet with you when you arrive at the center, and will spend time answering questions, determining needs, and providing resources.
REFERRALS FOR COUNSELING
The issues that bring families to our center are often new experiences for families, and often traumatic and scary. To foster healing, evidence-based treatments for mental health are often recommended for both children and their families. A Child's Voice provides information about mental health providers in the area and makes referrals at the request of families when necessary.
Sometimes families have questions after leaving our center or need more support a couple weeks down the road. Our family advocate, or a social work intern serving as a family advocate for the family, will reach out and continue to support families and children even after they have visited the center.
