As one of the most comprehensive mental health treatment programs in the country, EMQ FamiliesFirst uses a state-of-the-art approach that includes intensive in-home and community-based services, prevention and early intervention, behavioral health such as autism, school-based services, foster care and adoption, services for transitional age youth, and residential treatment.  We combine a family-centered, strengths-based approach with research-based services. We evaluate our services using  Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) and the Wraparound Fidelity Index. The agency has a long history of advocating on behalf of children and families for systems change at the local and state levels.
