CK Behavioral Health Services


CK Behavioral Health provides hope and opportunity for healing to children and families who are living with the day to day experience of mental illness and the impact of trauma.  All our professional staff hold licenses or are certified per State requirements and use nationally recognized, evidence based tools to support you and your family.

Community Support Services

Through our Community Support Services program, we offer Trauma Informed Counseling, Skills Training, Medication Training, Routine Mental Health Case Management, Wraparound Case Management, and CANS Assessments.

In most cases these services are provided in your home but might also occur at a child’s school (with appropriate permissions in place) or at another location in the community that is appropriate to the needs of your family.  The frequency and duration of services depends on the needs of your family and can range from as little as an hour every other week to several hours a day.  In severe cases, we recommend more frequent and intense services initially and then tapering down to a schedule that is less frequent over time.

The center piece services provided through our Community Support Services program are the Skills Training and the Wraparound Case Management.  Learn more about Skills Training, how Skills Training work alongside counseling, and the evidence based curricula we use in Skills Training further down this page.

The Nurturing Parenting Programs are a family-centered trauma-informed initiative designed to build nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to abusive and neglecting parenting and child-rearing practices.


Based in an ecological model, wraparound draws upon the strengths and resources of a committed group of family, friends, professionals, and community members. Wraparound mobilizes resources and talents from a variety of sources resulting in the creation of a plan of care that is the best fit between the family vision and story, team mission, strengths, needs, and strategies.


Skill Streaming and Aggression Replacement Training is a multimodal intervention design to alter the behavior of chronically aggressive youth. It consists of skill streaming, designed to teach a broad curriculum of prosocial behavior, anger control training, a method for empowering youth to modify their own anger responsiveness, and moral reasoning training, to help motivate youth to employ the skills learned via the other components.


Your Defiant Teen and Your Defiant Child provides help for parents to understand the causes of noncompliant, defiant, oppositional, or socially hostile behavior at home or in school.


Passing from adolescence into adulthood is a challenging time for everyone. The transition years can be even more trying for those who experience emotional and behavioral difficulties or have another disability. PAYA assists adolescents in successfully navigating this transition.


Seeking Safety is an evidence based, present-focused counseling model to help people attain safety from trauma and/or substance abuse. It addresses both PTSD and Substance Use simultaneously to help eliminate substance use, reduce PTSD symptoms, and regain safety.
