Family Support and Training (FS&T)

Family support and training (FS&T) are services that a parent(s) or caregiver(s) of a child or teen under the age of 19 can get where they live to help them provide the emotional and behavioral health support and care the child or teen needs.

Services for a parent/caregiver may include:

  • Education, coaching and training
  • Help with agencies that serve children (e.g., Departments of Children and Families or Mental Health and Youth Services)
  • Help finding peer/parent support and self-help groups
  • Help finding community resources (e.g., after-school programs, food assistance and summer camps)

FS&T services are hub-dependent, meaning they require referral from a clinical-hub provider—an outpatient, in-home therapy provider—who coordinates the child's or teen’s care and works with other service providers. FS&T services are also provided in conjunction with intensive care coordination services, which would also be a clinical hub provider within the community service agency. FS&T does not require prior authorization.
