The Lighthouse Integrated Access Team

Your first step to help

At Lighthouse Youth & Family Services, we understand that being able to connect to the services you need when you need them is central to positive emotional health and healing.

Our Integrated Access program offers a comprehensive intake and assessment process that helps young people and their families quickly connect to mental health services and other needed resources. We offer assessments for individuals age 3 and up.

The first step is a diagnostic assessment with one of the highly skilled clinicians on the Lighthouse mental health assessment team.  Our comprehensive same-day services also include treatment planning and referrals for ongoing mental health services. Our team can promptly link to outpatient therapy and support services, substance use disorder treatment, shelter, and housing for homeless youth, and an array of other services for young people ages 0-24.

We are here for you.
