Administrative Service Coordination (ASC)
There's no question that it's difficult to care for a child with mental health problems, but add all of life's other challenges on top of that, and you may find yourself in a situation that feels almost hopeless. ASC is a program you can turn to for the assistance you need to ensure continuity of care for your child, age 3-21, who has a mental health diagnosis. We offer support in coordinating services for the whole family, across various clinical and/or community programs. Best of all, ASC operates with the utmost sensitivity to you and your situation.
