Youth and Family Resiliency Program
Cummins’ Youth and Family Resiliency Program serves children and adolescents, ages 5-18, with serious emotional disturbances in the context of the family system. Additionally, some school-based programs serve pre-school aged youth (2-5) and their families.
Service divisions within the Youth and Family Resiliency Program include:
- Office and Community-based Services
- School-based Services
- Family Preservation Services
- Child Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW) Services
- Employment Services for Transitional-age Youth
Office and Community-based Services
Children with emotional disturbances and their families are able to receive comprehensive treatment through our outpatient offices. Therapy, skills training and development, and case management are offered in the office and community to youth and their families.

In collaboration with local schools, Cummins places clinical providers within the school to work with children and adolescents in their natural setting, where mental health difficulties frequently present themselves. Early identification and treatment of these conditions often results in fewer mental health challenges when youths enter adulthood.

Family Preservation Services
Cummins may receive referrals for service from the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS). Referred families are paired with providers who specialize in DCS-involved cases. Services are provided in the home, office and community, and they frequently include supervised visitation services.
The Department of Child Services may also make referrals to Cummins through the Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI). This initiative is intended to provide extensive and intensive services for at-risk children and families who are not eligible for Medicaid Rehabilitation Services. Cummins provides CMHI services in counties where the Division of Mental Health and Addiction has designated Cummins as a provider of services for the 1915i waiver program.

Child Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW) Services
The Child Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW) program is an intensive, community-based services program provided to families with the greatest risk of out-of-home placement for children. Cummins provides CMHW services in Boone, Hendricks, Marion, Montgomery, and Putnam counties. The CMHW program is a 1915i Medicaid waiver program in the state of Indiana.

Employment Services for Transitional-age Youth
Employment Services may be available to youth who are aging out of the child service system and are transitioning to the adult service system. Employment specialists can provide pre-employment skills training, referrals to vocational rehabilitation services, and employment services to transitioning youth with the goal of obtaining adult employment.
