EMQ FamiliesFirst is one of the largest, most comprehensive mental health treatment programs in the country. The agency takes a state-of-the-art approach to children and youth with complex behavioral health challenges: we combine research-based services (including evidence-based therapies and psychiatric services) with a family-centered effort to identify and address the social and other needs of the family. Our results for youth are on average 10 percentage points higher when compared to state or national averages on metrics such as living at home, staying in school and out of trouble.

EMQ FamiliesFirst believes the most effective form of care for children, youth and their families is
based in the community, using strengths and needs to define and individualize service. We believe
children and families should have the greatest possible access to services, as well as maximum voice
and choice in planning, carrying out and evaluating those services.
