Lexington County Community Mental Health Center’s Child, Adolescent and Family Services (CAF) program embraces the value that children grow, develop, and have the best opportunities for learning and practicing healthy emotional and social responses when in their home environments and communities.

The CAF Program offers an array of assessment and psychotherapeutic services to children, adolescents and families who are experiencing a variety of mental health problems. We believe that given the opportunity, support and resources children, adolescents and their families can overcome obstacles and learn to deal with mental, emotional and behavioral difficulties successfully.

We are committed to services that promote the individual’s quality of life, focus on the individual’s strengths, foster independence and honor the rights, wishes and needs of the individual and his/her family.  The person served engages in an active partnership with the clinician in the treatment planning process.  Services are tailored to meet the needs of the individual, taking into consideration their strengths, needs, abilities, cultural background, and preferences.
