Public Notice:

At Familylinks, our priority remains the health and safety of our clients and our team, and we continue to take measures to protect against the spread of the COVID-19. Last week we made the decision to cancel all events and suspend volunteer activities until further notice. This week we have made the necessary modifications to our programs and services, in accordance with guidelines set by local and state government, so we can continue to serve individuals and families in western Pennsylvania.

As public health officials assess the risk, we are closely monitoring the spread of the virus and evaluating potential implications. We will continue to share all updates on our website and social media pages.

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services has created a support and referral helpline for COVID-19. To review the details click here.

Family-Based Mental Health Services

If your child is dealing with mental health issues, Family Based Mental Health services help your entire family learn skills to help stay happy and healthy together. Family Based treatment involves a team of two therapists coming to the client family’s home and working with different family members. Your child’s and family’s issues are addressed where they occur (in the home), and everyone in the household is involved in the solution.

Who is eligible?

  • Children and adolescents up to age 21 with mental health issues, along with their families.
  • At least one adult family member or caregiver must be willing to participate in treatment sessions.
  • Clients are served regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.

What can you expect?

  • A team of two Family Based Mental Health specialists will come to your home to work with not only the client but their entire family.
  • Counselors will work to understand the roots of the issues in the household and involve the entire family in learning skills that can help address them.
  • Your Family Based specialists will work with you to develop a crisis plan.
  • Therapy sessions will be scheduled at your convenience.
