The Thompson Wraparound program focuses on youth with complex mental health needs as they transition back into the community from an inpatient PRTF (Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility), a Level III, or a therapeutic foster home. Structured, ongoing coaching from the Thompson team will ensure your family’s voice will be heard. Our Wraparound program supports bringing people together from different parts of the family’s life to work collectively to help youth grow up in their homes and communities successfully.
At the beginning of the Wraparound process, we work to develop trust and a shared vision. This initial phase includes respectful conversations about the youth and family’s strengths, needs, and cultural values. These early conversations set the tone for cooperative teamwork and building relationships that are important. Together, the youth, family and Thompson Wraparound Staff will select the supportive members of the Child & Family Team in order to begin developing the individualized action plan. All team members will assist the youth and family by being supportive of their goals, and believing in the family’s abilities to manage their own lives.
Thompson Wraparound is intended for youth 6-20 years old.
Some highlights of the Thompson Wraparound program include:
- Family and Youth partners focused on helping you to effectively navigate the child-serving systems
- An advocate for your family’s needs, goals, and expectations
- A collaborative approach to structured care coordination by working in partnership with family, natural supports, school and community agencies
- Services provided in the home setting or other natural environments (school/community)
