We listen to each family's story and provide assistance in a way that is meaningful. This is why each child and family unit receives respect at BAMSI Kids. BAMSI offers families the individualized support they need to learn, grow, and succeed based on their strengths.

By listening to each family’s story and understanding their needs, BAMSI can tailor the support they provide to meet their needs. This allows families to feel heard and respected, giving them the best chance of achieving their goals.

From birth through adulthood, BAMSI Kids provides integrated services that address the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social needs of children. Through BAMSI’s wraparound process, each family receives individualized care and receives nutritional assistance and parent support.

“Our compassionate, supportive and knowledgeable team are the key to destigmatizing perceptions and misunderstandings around psychosis. Instilling hope in our youth and families that you can recover and live a thriving, healthy life even after a psychotic episode is crucial in our work. We want them to know that they are capable of building resiliency and to believe that things will get better with the right supports.”

It Will Get Better

The Coordinated Specialty Care-First Episode Psychosis program provides comprehensive, community-based wraparound services for Brockton area families and youth, ages 13-22, who are experiencing a first-time psychotic episode or who may be at risk of later developing a psychotic episode. Our diverse Flex Team, developed in collaboration with the Southeast Area Department of Mental Health office, provides early intervention first through human, relational engagement with youth and families using a culturally aware, recovery-oriented, and strength-based approach.   

We respectfully collaborate to help to instill hope and destigmatize mental illness for those in the Brockton and surrounding school districts.

We then journey together with the youth, family, and their team toward a path of wellness and thriving.
