Adult Programs

 

Family Support Services

Our Family and Friends Coordinators (FFCs) advocate for system transformation in Placer County’s Adult System of Care to improve services and supports for the family members and caretakers of adult mental health clients. FFCs participate in system-wide planning meetings and outreach efforts, such as collaborative and cultural events, to inform the broader community of the Family Support Services Program.

Speakers Bureau

Facilitated by our Consumer Affairs Coordinator, The Placer County Speakers Bureau, is a group of current/former consumers and family members who present inspirational stories of recovery from mental illness across Placer, Sacramento, and Nevada counties. Presentations range from 15-60 minutes, with time for questions and answers at the end. Presentations can be tailored to an audience’s unique interests or emphasize specific subject matters.  Speakers are also available to present on evenings and weekends.

WRAP® Groups

Our dedicated peer support staff facilitate recurring 2-day WRAP® groups several times each year.  WRAP® is a self-designed plan for staying well and for helping you to feel better when you are not feeling well, to increase personal responsibility, and to improve your quality of life. Our certified WRAP® facilitators help each participant develop a personal Wellness Toolbox and create a Wellness Recovery Action Plan uniquely tailored to address their own triggers, stressors, and symptoms.

Children’s and Family Services

 

Parent Partner Program

Our Family Advocates use creative, culturally sensitive, and strengths-based thinking to support families in achieving their goals. We believe families are the experts in knowing their own needs and that extra support from someone who can relate makes the difference between delayed progress and a successful outcome.  Our services are located in Roseville, Rocklin, Auburn, and Tahoe.

 

Our Family Advocates:

 

  • Provide support to families receiving services from Placer County’s Children’s System of Care, including Behavioral Health, Drug Court, Child Welfare, and Juvenile Probation Services.

  • Create linkages between teachers, juvenile probation officers, mental health workers, and social workers.

  • Support families in court proceedings, treatment team meetings, and school meetings.

  • Assist families in being equal partners with professionals assisting them.

  • Provide an opportunity for parents to benefit from the support and understanding of other parents who have gone through similar experiences.

  • Link families to community resources and supports.
