Screening Process: Staff utilize the GAIN SS and youth with a moderate or high score are referred to one of three assessment providers: Waynesboro Family Clinic, PORT Human Services and Family First Support Center.  

Assessment Process: A GAIN Initial or Core assessment is completed on each youth that is referred by JJSAMHP. Information from the assessment is shared with JJSAMHP staff and used for Child and Family team processes. The youth and family are encouraged to participate in recommended services where they have been assessed by a partner provider. Should other services be needed or youth and family prefer another provider, client choice is allowed.

Treatment Process: A Child and Family Team is held for each youth after their assessment is completed. Child and Family Teams are then held once per month or more often if needed and decisions about treatment are made in collaboration with the family.
