Edgewood Wraparound: Turning Point

Since 2006, Edgewood has provided Turning Point, Full Service Partnership (FSP) Programming to the highest risk Children/Youth, Transition Age Youth, and their families living in San Mateo County. The provision of our services are matched to the developmental needs of our youth. Due to differing stages of life stressors, Turning Point is comprised of two specialized programs:

  • Child/Youth (C/Y): addresses the needs of youth (ages 6-21) within the context of their family, community, and institutional systems.
  • Transition Age Youth (TAY): is dedicated to serving youth (ages 17-25) with severe mental health needs, who are transitioning into adulthood.

Youth are typically referred to our CY and TAY programs for symptoms of severe mental illness which have negatively affected their life. They come to us when all areas of their life are stressed and they are at-risk for out of home/school placement, hospitalization, and/or have strained relationships with their support system.

Nearly all of our youth are affected by complex trauma at a personal, familial, intergenerational, societal, and cultural level. In order to treat these complex needs we utilize a multifaceted approach to help children, youth, and their families achieve independence, stability, and wellness within the context of their family, community, and culture. Our services include comprehensive mental health treatment, case coordination, skills training, and 24/7 crisis support.
