Wraparound for Mississippi youth and their families

About the families we serve

The youth we work with usually have complex behavioral health needs. They may express risky behavior, such as hurting themselves, skipping school, running away, or abusing drugs and alcohol.

We currently serve families who:

  • Live in Southern Mississippi;
  • Engage with multiple systems, such as Child Protection Services, juvenile justice, and mental health; and
  • Care for a youth or young adult (21 and under) who is at risk of placement in a psychiatric residential treatment facility.

What is Wraparound?

Through a process called Wraparound, Choices connects youth and families with resources to help them thrive. Families are in the driver’s seat and lead decision making.

Wraparound prevents unnecessary removal of children from their homes. Other benefits of the program include:

  • Being heard as a family and leading the planning process
  • Better family harmony
  • Improved life and social skills
  • Stronger community support
  • Safer behavior at home, school, and elsewhere
