What makes BHSS unique?

Behavioral Health Support Services is unlike any other mental health wellness approach in El Paso County. Child-serving agencies come together in order to assist the family of the identified client. The family chooses who will be on their team as they work towards achieving their goals in the program. Team members can be teachers, pastors, friends, relatives, doctors etc.

One of the most unique aspects of the service approach is that no one is removed from the program. If a family, individual or agency is struggling with part of the agreed upon action plan, then the team revisits the goals.

The teams at Behavioral Health Support Services are all culturally sensitive to the needs of the diverse population that calls El Paso, Texas home. They have received hundreds of hours in cultural competency and infuse their knowledge into the care they provide, ensuring that the families are comfortable.

Does Behavioral Health Support Services provide services for more than one child in a family? How long does the program last?

Treatment can last from 9 months to a year, dependent on how well the family moves together in achieving their goals.

What type of services does Behavioral Health Support Services offer?

Behavioral Health Support Services is not a service provider but rather is the main point of contact and guide to wrapping a family with as many community based services as are appropriate and needed. There are support staff that provide knowledge and activities for both the youth and the parents to participate.
