specialized family based mental health services

Specialized Family Based Mental Health (FMBH) helps parents care for their children who have been victims of sexual abuse or demonstrate sexually reactive behaviors. Co-therapists work with the family to provide intensive in-home therapy, case management and crisis intervention services.

Specialized FMBH is a voluntary 8-month program that generally includes 3-5 visits with the family each week. Counselors are on-call 24/7.

The Specialized FMBH Services Program is available in Erie, Crawford, Mercer, and Venango Counties.
