Behavioral Health Advocacy

At Arc Northland’s Family Services, we know that dealing with behavioral health issues can be complicated and frustrating. For that reason, we provide advocacy, information, and support for families struggling with mental health disabilities. We meet individually with your family and attend group, special ed staffing, planning, and discharge meetings. You are supported and informed through the massive network of information and services.  We streamline decisions on care and services to help you find support.
