We built Kids Oneida on the premise of keeping families together while children and their families work on goals to improve their behavioral and mental health. This program provides a treatment plan that is flexible and designed to assist families with children with an Axis I Mental Health Diagnosis, who are at imminent risk of out-of-home placement.
Kids Oneida ACT is an Office of Mental Health Waiver Demonstration Project, and the only program of its kind in New York State.
In all levels of Kids Oneida programming, families are provided with a team-based approach to address severe and chronic mental illness. The family, our Kids Oneida providers, and various community partners then work together to develop a comprehensive and unique treatment plan and determine support services to meet the needs of the family. Through Kids Oneida, we offer several traditional and non-traditional treatment options that may include Behavior Management, Mentoring, Psychiatric Consultations, Intensive Supervision, and Special Therapy.
Within the Kids Oneida program, we have consistently demonstrated that positive outcomes can be achieved despite significant trauma, mental illness, and psychosocial stressors.
Children who have participated in Kids Oneida and still require support services, but not quite at the intensive level, may participate in our Step-Down program. This is an abridged version of Kids Oneida that maintains Wraparound services.
The Kids Oneida Step-Down Program is a preventative program through the Oneida County Department of Social Services (OCDSS), all based on a Wraparound philosophy of care. Services provided while in the Step-Down program are slowly decreased over time to ensure that stability is maintained, and families are empowered to identify and access community resources and natural supports.
