Support Groups

Specialized and general groups are available.

Information & Referral, Proactive Intervention

Assistance through short-term case management for families whose children are experiencing behavioral issues. Information can be provided to help you connect with needed services and supports. Referrals to other services, both within and outside of CAPTAIN CHS can be made.

Respite & Skill Building

These services are provided to families that involved in the SPOA program, clients of the Saratoga County Department of Mental Health, Medicaid's Home Community-Based Waiver Program, and other county case management programs. The services are provided as supports to families at high levels of need.
