Integrated Care Connections

The YESS Integrated Care Connections (ICC) program supports children in the community experiencing mental health challenges by focusing on the needs of the family as a whole. ICC brings together mental, physical, and social health services into one integrated program so families can receive the best care possible for their child.

Each family in the YESS ICC program is connected with a three-person team to receive flexible support and services focused on their strengths, needs, and comfort level. These teams include a Nurse, Care Coordinator, and Family Peer Support Specialist, who work in partnership with families to determine the best path to success. Learn more about those who make up the ICC team.
