Mission Statement

Louisiana says Y.E.S....to Children's Mental Health - a collaborative partnership that works because we focus on the child and the process is driven by the families. The Louisiana Youth Enhanced Services (LA-Y.E.S.) is a System of Care that was developed to help children with behavioral and emotional disorders get the care that they need so they can have happier and healthier relationships with their family, school, and community. Under the system of care, all the resources in a community - from child-serving organizations to local children's mental health councils, work together, as directed by the parents and caregivers, to develop an individualized service plan that's right for the Child and can be followed in the communty.
