In the future, as Louisiana’s Coordinated System of Care (CSOC) is developed, children and families will have access to an expanding array of services and supports to assist them with mental health needs. CSOC’s planners noticed early in the planning stage that many areas of Louisiana, especially rural areas, lack necessary local mental health and family support services.
In spite of the shortage, there ARE resources available in Louisiana for children and families. We offer an array of counseling programs including our Family Counseling Center in Ruston, Family Plus offices in locations across Louisiana and our Multisystemic Therapy programs in Monroe and Shreveport.
Of course, there are others, too, who provide support to children and families. One of these is the network of 10 Families Helping Families (FHF) centers in Louisiana.
Families Helping Families are nonprofit centers which work to help families find the services they need in their community. FHF provides information and referrals, education and training and peer-to-peer support.
There is a Families Helping Families office in each region of Louisiana. Here, by region, is the contact information for the Families Helping Families centers in Louisiana:
