The South Carolina Department of Mental Health (SCDMH), in collaboration with the Department of Children’s Advocacy (SCDCA) and the partner agencies of the Joint Council on Children and Adolescents, expand the system of care in three jurisdictions in upstate South Carolina. Project FOCUS (Family Options in Cherokee, Union, and Spartanburg Counties) will serve children and youth aged 0-21 who have a serious emotional disturbance (SED) and their families in these three contiguous counties.
Our goal is to reduce psychiatric hospitalizations, emergency department visits for behavioral health issues, and out of home placements, while improving the mental health of children and families throughout the region.
The mission of the FOCUS program is to prioritize families and implement a comprehensive array of services across the three- county region that reflects the voice and choice of children, youth and families, while improving the overall health of the communities where they reside.
We are able to offer a matrix of services and supports, across ages and across presenting problems, that improves outcomes by utilizing evidence-based and promising practices. These reflect the voice and choice of youth and families, while improving the overall health of the communities where they reside.
