Wayfinder provides youth, adults, and families in Los Angeles with compassionate assistance and mental health services. Wayfinder provides a wide range of emotional and behavioral counseling services to help clients build skills to cope with traumatic experiences, unstable environments, abuse, neglect, loss of sight and more. Wayfinder’s mental health services are offered on our Los Angeles campus and in the surrounding communities.
Mental Health Services provided by Wayfinder are available to young people in Los Angeles who have been impacted by the foster care system, especially children who are medically fragile, multi-disabled or chronically ill, as well as individuals and families who need assistance coping with the effects of sudden or gradual vision loss.
Clients within Wayfinder’s Mental Health Services programs will receive:
- Mental health assessments
- Individual and family therapy
- Collaboration with families, schools and other relevant agencies
- Medication evaluation and management assistance
- Support with social skills, conflict resolution, and behavioral management
- Behavioral and crisis intervention
- Support from a bilingual family partner
- Services provided at homes, schools and community centers throughout Los Angeles, as well as on Wayfinder’s safe, beautiful eight-acre campus
Children may be referred by parents, teachers, friends, pastors, pediatricians, coaches or the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Youth do not have to be blind or visually impaired to receive services, but must be Medi-Cal eligible.
