Wisconsin Mental Health Services
Community Care Programs specializes in providing unique, targeted treatment programs for emotional and behavioral health outcomes to children, adolescents, and families. These programs have a beginning, middle, and end with clearly outlined objectives. Our programs are designed to target core issues so that valuable therapy time is spent on healing from the problems that brought the youth to our clinic. Our mission is to provide high-quality treatment services that reduce recidivism rates and prevent out-of-home placement. If out-of-home placement becomes necessary, the treatment programs at CCP are designed to support care providers and assist treatment team members with a youth smooth transition back to the biological home, kinship placement, adoptive placement or independent living situation.
Community Care Programs staff are committed to applying current research and Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) to difficult emotional and behavioral problems including youth sexual offending and explosive emotional behaviors. For example, CCP has incorporated advances in neurodevelopment research into all of the therapy services clients receive so that youth and parents can practice stress management, brain calming and cognitive coping strategies in the clinic and in their homes.
When a youth is enrolled in a CCP program, our experienced and specialized therapists provide a weekly therapy progress note to the designated treatment team members. Therapists also participate in treatment team meetings on a monthly basis or at a frequency determined by the youth's treatment team.
Community Care Programs is a stand-alone outpatient behavioral health clinic that partners with its sister agency, Community Care Resources as needed. Community Care Resources is a treatment foster care agency that offers placement for high needs youth throughout the state of Wisconsin.CCR and CCP can be utilized separately or in conjunction to meet the needs of youth with trauma histories, sexual abuse survivor and sexual acting out behaviors, substance abuse problems, pornography addiction, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and a wide variety of other child and adolescent behavioral and mental health issues.
The Community Care Programs (CCP) child/adolescent, specialty mental health clinic was developed in response to a service gap in Wisconsin. CCP is unique in that we serve youth and parents period. We are not a large generalist clinic. All of our clinicians have spent years working directly with children, adolescents and parents in clinics, foster homes, group homes, biological homes, and residential treatment centers. Most of our clients have severe trauma histories and significant mental health issues. Our clinicians specialize in treating a wide variety of severe and chronic behavioral and mental health disorders.
