Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CYS maintains a treatment philosophy based on empowering families, individualizing treatment planning and building skills which enable youth and families to function effectively in the least restrictive setting possible. This philosophy is actualized through the following goals:

● Clinical excellence in specialty mental health services provided by highly skilled and trained professionals collaborating on a multidisciplinary team guided by the individual needs of every youth and family served.

● Fully trauma informed therapeutic residential program that provides a safe, nurturing, supportive environment where every interaction has the potential to create positive change, enhance relationships, and validate the value and potential of each youth.

● Employment experience where all employees feel appreciated and respected, have opportunities for continuing education and career development, and have a daily sense of accomplishment in their critically important and meaningful service.

● Community presence and partnerships that enhance the work we do and allow our youth to transition successfully into lower levels of care or into a family home environment.

● Foster permanency by modeling healthy and safe relationships, providing opportunities for youth and their families to reconnect and repair fragile relationships, linking caregivers and families to supportive services, providing education and counseling so families and caregivers can better understand and respond to the individual needs of their youth.

● Culturally appreciative and inclusive environment that welcomes and respects all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds, as well as all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions.

The core philosophy of CYS is that children do well when they can. We recognize that the youth we serve do not come to us by choice of actions, but by actions that were necessary for their survival. Only when young people feel safe can they learn new skills that will allow them to thrive and find success in their lives; to do well. We believe that if we can help identify and understand the lagging or absent skills that impede our youth’s ability to stay safe and connected, we can work collaboratively to identify solutions that will result in growth and development in all areas of executive functioning and interpersonal relationships. CYS treatment philosophies and approaches:

CYS utilizes theoretical models that provide a positive and strength-based framework for child development and resiliency:

○ Developmental Model: the model which guides through an understanding of biological, social, and psychological stages;
○ System theory: the model concerned with the connection between human beings and their environments;
○ Psychosocial Model: the approach which emphasizes case planning, access to resources, and validation of each person’s uniqueness and ability to direct their own life;
○ Social learning Theory: the theory, which explains that social behavior, develops from paying attention to role models, practicing new behavior, and then motivated to apply those new behaviors.
○ Trauma Informed Care: an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma, and also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both consumers and providers, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.

Methods utilized by CYS to achieve program goals align with the Continuum of Care identified Core Services. All services are delivered within a framework of cultural relevance, trauma informed care, and are age and developmentally appropriate. Incorporating collaboration, innovation, and best practices, CYS will directly provide or contract with appropriate community partners to provide:

Specialty mental health services for youth who meet medical necessity criteria:
○ Assessment
○ Plan Development
○ Targeted Case Management
○ Individual, Family, and/or Group Psychotherapy
○ Collateral
○ Medication Support
○ Intensive Care Coordination
○ Intensive In Home Support Services

Transition support services for youth and families upon initial entry and placement changes and for families who assume permanency through reunification, adoption, or guardianship.

Educational and physical, behavioral, and mental health supports, including extracurricular activities and social supports.
● Activities designed to support youth in achieving a successful adulthood.
● Services to achieve permanency, including supporting efforts to reunify or achieve adoption or guardianship and efforts to maintain or establish relationships with parents, siblings, extended family members, tribes, or others important to the youth as appropriate.
● Indian children receive core services and supports in accordance with the Federal Indian Child Welfare Act (25 U.S.C. Sec. 1901 et seq.).

Since 2019, Chamberlain's Youth Services has successfully transitioned into a Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program, an accountable and effective mental health provider, and completed an expansion of the organization's Non-Public School student capacity.

CYS seeks to begin a capitol fundraising campaign in 2021 to support significant development to our campus site located at 1850 San Benito St., Hollister, CA.
