Mental Health programs work with youth to promote the youth’s recognition of their abilities and help identify coping skills to assist with promoting mental health well-being. Mental Health programs can utilize screening tools and assessments to help identify if the youth has a mental health diagnosis to further tailor the program to meet the needs of the youth. Mental health programs can be assessment focused, where the program completes the assessment and then locate the best services for the youth’s mental well-being, or the programs can be treatment focused, where the services provided to the youth that will help promote cognitive mental functioning through client-focused therapeutic options. A program can complete the assessment and treatment, but it is possible for treatment providers to have the youth referred to them from another agency having completed the assessment.
