WHAT IS WRAPAROUND?

The wraparound process is a tool for building constructive relationships and support networks among youth with emotional/behavioral challenges, their families, teachers and other caregivers.  This process, which is based on a family-centered, strength-based philosophy of care, is used to guide service planning for children with or at-risk of emotional and behavioral disabilities and their families.  In wraparound, a team works to identify the underlying needs, interests, and limitations of families and service providers, and to develop a plan that address these interests using natural, community supports whenever possible (Eber, Nelson and Miles, 1997; Burchard 2000).

 

Can my youth and family receive support through the wraparound program?  The most basic eligibility criteria for wraparound are that the youth and/or legal guardian must be a resident of Clermont County, the youth must be 0-21 years old, and the youth must have a mental health diagnosis or an emerging mental health diagnosis.  The Clermont County wraparound program serves youth who are involved with more than one system or agency or eligible to be served by more than one system or agency.

Youth and families involved in wraparound may have access to an array of services, including parent peer support, respite, and in-home support, as well as the wide spectrum of services already available through existing service providers.

The wraparound referral form is available at Wraparound Referral Form.  Referrals are accepted from families, schools, agencies and providers.  Referrals can be faxed to 513-732-7491.
