Intensive Crisis Stabilization

The Summit Pointe ICS Team will be providing mobile crisis stabilization services to all children/youth, ages 0-21, who reside in Calhoun County. All insurances accepted.

The Summit Pointe ICS team provides an on-site intervention with the identified child/youth and their support system. This support can happen anywhere within Calhoun County; including home, school, or other community space.

The team’s main focus will be to help assess the crisis, utilize de-escalation techniques, and utilize the person-centered planning process. ICS will ensure family driven and youth-guided planning to help determine long-term care.

Peer Supports

Peer Supports and Mentors offer encouragement and the benefits of their lived experience. They are people with either a mental illness or developmental disability who have learned successful life strategies through their own experiences.

Peer Supports and Mentors know that being a self-advocate starts with self-determination. They know the benefits of living independently. In addition, they understand how to be part of the community and navigate housing, education, benefits, transportation and entitlements. Peer Supports and Peer Mentors involve friends and family as determined by the individuals they support.

Wraparound is a planning process used when children and families need a higher level of support to achieve their goals and when the child is at risk of not being able to stay at home or in the community. The Wraparound process starts with the Wraparound facilitator bringing together the child, his or her family and other people the family wants to involve – for example, a special education teacher or a foster care worker. The Wraparound team identifies the child and family’s strengths and needs and decides how to help them meet their goals. The Wraparound team meets at least once a month to make sure all parts of the plan are going well and to adjust the plan if needed. Wraparound usually lasts several months to a year based on the progress in meeting the goals. When it is time to finish the Wraparound process, the team will figure out what service providers will continue to work with the family – for example outpatient counseling, Community Living Supports (CLS) and psychotropic medication follow-up.


Home-Based services are more flexible because the services occur in the home and community and can be scheduled more often than is usually true of outpatient counseling. Sometimes Home-Based services are recommended when a child and family have more intensive needs and services are focused on both the child and the family. The goals for Home-Based services, how often sessions are scheduled and what approaches will be used are decided together by the child, family and Home-Based worker. Home-Based services are designed to support the child to remain in their family home. Home-Based services also may be used when children and families who have been separated are working on being reunified.
