Capital Area Human Services is a trusted service behavioral health and developmental disabilities provider to children and adults in a seven-parish region.

    Children with mental health needs sometimes enter a juvenile justice system ill-equipped to assist them. Between 65 percent and 70 percent of the 2 million children and adolescents arrested each year in the United States have a mental health disorder. Approximately one in four suffers from a mental illness. Children are referred by parents, schools, child welfare, juvenile justice, private mental health providers, adult mental health providers, etc. to mental health services. Services are provided in a strengths-based approach that respects family decision-making about their children and honors the family’s cultural values and practices.
