This program serves patients diagnosed with psychiatric conditions, and many of the children seen in the program also have co-occurring genetic conditions and other specialized medical diagnoses.  This support will allow patients access to treatments, augmentative services, and specialized materials that are not being covered by insurance but have been recommended by medical and professional staff to increase the patient’s opportunity to stabilize; maintain progress; and recover from mental health conditions that are not covered by insurance.
