Mental Health for Youth in Detention

The Heartland Family Service Mental Health for Youth in Detention program provides mental health outpatient services to youth, and their families when possible, for the youth detainees at the Douglas County Youth Center (DCYC) and Sarpy County Juvenile Justice Center (JJC).

We provide crisis intervention services, short term individual and/or family counseling, and planning for transitional services as well as continuity
of care.

Services will address emotional crisis, including suicide risk assessment, depression, anxiety, and trauma exposure – including traumatic grief when the youth has lost significant others.

Eligibility: Services are provided to youth at the Douglas County Youth Center and Sarpy County Juvenile Justice Center.
