What is the Youth & Family Care Connection?

The YFCC, a new and innovative behavioral health service program for Oakland County youth and families, is being launched by Oakland Community Health Network. This one of- a-kind program includes community access for behavioral health triage and care coordination, as well as a separate Crisis Care Unit for children aged 17 and under. Youth can receive services in the unit for up to 72 hours as determined by a mental health screening and based on capacity.

The YFCC and the Crisis Care Unit provide a new level of care for youth in Oakland County and fill a gap in services. Anticipated outcomes for these services include expanding behavioral health services for families in crisis, reducing extended hospital emergency department stays, and offering psychiatric interventions that could potentially avoid inpatient hospitalization.
