The Western Mental Health Day Treatment (MHDT) Program provides intensive therapeutic services to children with severe emotional disturbances (SED).

Children in kindergarten through grade five receive academic instruction, individual, family, and group therapy, and psychiatric services along with KY Impact, as well as a variety of assessment measures during the course of an average six-nine month stay. Coordination and consultation among the family, mental health providers, and the school system provide the children and their families a seamless set of services.

  • Population Served: Boys and girls, Kindergarten through Grade Five
  • Specific Characteristics: The Western MHDT Program provides intensive therapeutic services to children with SED.
  • Maximum Enrollment: 32
  • Western MHDT follows the JCPS calendar and includes a summer program.
We are a collaborative program between Seven Counties Services, Inc. and JCPS. The program has four classrooms, each with eight children. Children referred to the Western MHDT Program must be in need of a more restrictive environment. In order for the referral process to begin, a referral form from the child’s therapist is needed, stating current status and behaviors, diagnosis, medications, age, and grade level; current school placement and interventions being used by the school; treatment history, all treatment providers involved, and guardian information. The child must display functional difficulty in at least two environments: school, family, self-care, self-direction, and/or interpersonal relations.

Once all referral information has been received, staff will complete an intensive screening assessment and present it to our treatment team to determine appropriateness and availability. It is necessary to allow adequate time for this to occur. Our therapist contacts the referring clinician to inform him or her of our team’s decision.
