Thousands of children and youth in our community are suffering
from serious mental health conditions that without help, face
significant obstacles to realizing their full potential.
Through Stanford Youth Solutions’ Flexible Integrated Treatment
(FIT) program, our community’s at-risk youth and their families
become empowered to lead their lives more fully through our
intensive, evidence-based therapy and case management services.
We focus on tangible benchmarks and outcomes throughout our
service to each young person and their family. Youth learn new
skills to reduce risky behaviors while building on their
strengths to improve overall mental and behavioral health and
Medi-Cal eligible children and youth ages 0 – 18 (and in some
circumstances up to age 24) receive services through FIT for
approximately 9 – 12 months.
We always work with families and caregivers, and never work
with a child in isolation.
We achieve excellent outcomes through our use of
evidence-based programs, and best practices including
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Functional Family
Therapy and High Fidelity Wraparound Child Family Team Meetings.
Therapeutic services are provided in family’s homes, in
community settings of families’ choice, or in our conveniently
located counseling center.
