The Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) and the Department of Mental Health have partnered to provide Mental Health Rehabilitation Services to youth. Services are provided in English and/or Spanish.
The LAYC is a certified Core Services Agency (CSA) through the Department of Mental Health. This program provides out patient and assessment and mental health treatment. Services integrate the strengths of family relationships, respond to individual cultural differences, and incorporate the special needs of each family into treatment plans. The CSA provides prevention and education services, and uses many interventions including counseling, medication, and other rehabilitation services.
Our services are provided at homes, schools, neighborhood sites, or our many locations throughout the District. Our school-based services are provided to all grade levels in public and charter schools. Children and adolescents involved in court and foster care systems also benefit from the various services provided to them and their families.
