Central Star Community Services
Our programs have been providing in-person services to clients and families throughout the pandemic. However, our offices have limited hours and are not seeing clients on-site in person. We can provide telehealth services over the phone or video if a family requests this. Please call for more information prior to coming into our offices.
In Stanislaus County, which includes the cities of Modesto and Turlock, Central Star Behavioral Health serves children and adolescents through a family-focused Full Service Partnership (FSP) program.
The FSP program in Stanislaus County works with underserved children and youth ages 6-17 and families who have a mental illness or condition, have been hospitalized (or are at risk), and those who need individualized mental health services and linkages to services.
Central Star’s individual services are mainly delivered in the home or community, with groups and classes and psychiatry offered in our convenient, community-based location. An FSP team will provide:
- Individual and Family Counseling
- Psychiatric Care
- Medication Management
- Crisis Intervention Services
- Housing & Vocational Support
- Independent Living Skills Development
- After-School Groups/Activities and more
Pathways to Well-Being provides intensive care coordination and intensive home-based and school-based mental health services to children and youth in child welfare. The program works to build stronger, resilient families that nurture and raise their children without maltreatment or excessive family conflict despite exposures to stress and hardship.
