Mental Health or Behavioral Issues

Pathways to Independence

Clients are referred by Allegheny County Human Services Rapid Response Team; families cannot register a child for this service directly.

Pathways to Independence provides a safe and therapeutic environment for children and youth with mental-health issues or identified special needs to live and receive specialized care. Pathways is specially tailored to children and youth who simply can’t stay at home with family because of issues stemming from their mental health diagnosis, health issues or other similar challenges.

Outpatient Mental Health - School Partnership

Our School Partnership only serves students enrolled in the schools that Familylinks partners with. If your child may benefit from counseling, please consider our Outpatient Mental Health Clinic.

Mental health is far from an adults-only matter. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, half of all mental health disorders show their first signs before the person affected turns 14.

East Liberty Resource Coordination

In a new program established in 2015, Familylinks is working with East Liberty Development, Inc., to help residents of subsidized housing in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood to thrive. East Liberty has been the site of a great deal of change in recent years; East Liberty Resource Coordination is an effort to help the most vulnerable members of the community to continue to improve their lives and remain in their homes.

Therapeutic Learning Center

Parents cannot enroll their child directly in this program. The decision to send a student to the Therapeutic Learning Center is only made with input from the parent and their home school district. If your child might benefit from a specialized school program, consult with their teacher or school administrator.

STEP

While some children with mental health issues respond well to outpatient treatment, for others, it’s important for a therapist to be available more often, and in more places. Short Term Enhanced Programming (STEP) provides extra mobile assistance to children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbances. In the home, in school, and in the community, STEP gives your child the support they need to improve their ability to cope and grow, regardless of the time or circumstance.
