We serve youth and families in Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties. We partner with the Arapahoe Douglas Mental Health Network and Aurora Mental Health Center to provide behavioral health assessments through the Community Assessment Program.Our assessment process will identify strengths, risks and needs in a young person’s life. We will pinpoint key areas for intervention, help with clarity, and provide referrals for supportive services and positive strategies to address concerns.
