Counseling Services for Families
Most Family Counseling is provided in the private, confidential setting at one of Community Reach Center's five outpatient offices (see Counseling). Family Counseling is also provided within the context of School Based Therapy (see School Programs) or other programs for children and teens (see Child and Adolescent Services). In specific circumstances, families may be referred to Home Based Services as described below.
Community Reach considers psychiatric hospitalization or residential placement to be a treatment course of last-resort for our clients. Home-Based Services is a short-term program which provides treatment and case management in the homes of children, teens, and adults who are either currently at-risk for psychiatric hospitalization or other out-of-home placement, or who are returning home after one of these placements.

Suicide Prevention Strategies for Foster Parents
Every year in the United States, more than 4,000 youth and young adults die by suicide. Approximately 130,000 others are treated in emergency rooms for injuries from self harm (CDC, 2010). Although suicide can strike any family, youth in foster care are at higher risk for attempting or seriously considering suicide (Pilowsky and Wu, 2006). Fortunately, there are steps foster parents can take to identify at-risk youth and get help. Many young people who are thinking of killing themselves exhibit warning signs—behaviors and statements that indicate a high level of risk. Knowing the warning signs and risk factors can help foster parents intervene and get the youth connected to help.
