Eckerd Connects Wraparound Agencies serves children and teenagers struggling with mental health and addiction disorders who are at risk of being placed outside the home. Services are coordinated with these young people and their families based on a national results-based model. The program involves families as active partners and uses a team-based approach to coordinate services across multiple systems—including family, youth, community, schools and agencies. This process is conducted in the home as well as in community settings and has earned positive feedback from both parents and the young people Eckerd Connects serves.
