Juvenile Justice & Probation Services
Seneca collaborates with County Probation and Behavioral Health Care agencies to provide Multisystemic Therapy (MST) to youth and their families. MST is an evidence-based practice that utilizes intensive, strengths-based therapy provided in the home or community of each client youth and family. The average treatment duration is three to five months. The focus of the program is to build upon family and community strengths to address difficulties the youth is experiencing in school, with peers, and in family relationships. Addressing these key areas reduces the likelihood of re-involvement with the juvenile justice system.
Youth Transitional Services
This juvenile justice re-entry program provides community-based services and support for transition age youth (16-24 years) with serious emotional issues, many of whom are former foster youth. Youth Transitional Services (YTS) offers mental health treatment, supportive housing, life skills training, education and workforce development services.
