Children’s Therapeutic Services and Support (CTSS)

CTSS Skills and Psychotherapy services are housed out of our Waite Park office and serve clients within a 15 mile radius from this location. Services take place in the home or community to help children and their families develop skills to return lost abilities or restore them to typical developmental levels.

This program is available to children and families who access other services through CMMHC.
