Medi-Cal Services

As one of the largest mental health contract providers for the Orange County Health Care Agency, WYS provides mental, behavioral and emotional health services to more than 4,000 Medi-Cal families annually at one of our four outpatient clinics in Anaheim, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana and Mission Viejo. These patients are among the most vulnerable of our local population and are referred to us when facing crises.

Western Youth Services provides outpatient mental health services primarily for Orange County Medi-Cal eligible clients up to age twenty-one years old.  Individualized and solution-focused services are provided at a level, frequency and duration consistent with each client’s treatment goals utilizing Evidenced-Based Practices.  Services include but are not limited to clinical interventions, clinical and psycho-diagnostic assessment, family therapy, crisis intervention, treatment planning, discharge planning, case management, linkage to other services, mental health consultations, mediation support, Therapeutic Behavioral Services and advocacy.  In addition, collateral services may be provided to support and educate our client’s adult caregiver(s).  These services are usually provided in our clinics or our client’s homes but may also be provided in other locations, such as, schools, Juvenile Hall, and Orangewood Children and Family Center.

Services may include Evidence-Based Practices (EBP), such as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Functional Family Therapy (FFT) or in-home Therapeutic Behavior Services.
