Flexible support for children and families
Northwood Outpatient Services is a community-based mental health program. Designated as a Children’s Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) program by the state of Minnesota it provides flexible mental health services for children age 0-21 who require varying therapeutic and rehabilitative levels of intervention.
A comprehensive developmental plan is prepared by a multidisciplinary team including parents, referring agency staff, teachers, therapists, supervisors, counselors, and medical services personnel. The plan outlines specific treatment goals related to the diagnosis and is evaluated on an ongoing basis.
Northwood uses a positive development and asset building approach to create a structured and nurturing living and learning environment that allows each student to develop to their full potential.
- Diagnostic Testing
- Individual, family, and group therapy
- Psychological testing
- Skills training for students and families
This program is funded through Minnesota Medical Assistance and most private health insurance companies. Any person from 0 to age 21 who is in need of behavioral skills training or psychotherapy due to a mental health diagnosis can be referred. The first step is to determine the need for mental health services through a written evaluation called a diagnostic assessment.
