Children's Intensive Services in San Bernardino is designed for children and young people through age 18 with challenging emotional/behavioral difficulties who, without concerted services in their homes and communities, are at risk of hospitalization or other advanced out-of-home care. Additionally, the CIS Program stabilizes youth who are transitioning home from a psychiatric hospitalization, a residential treatment center, or similar facility. Youth with mental health issues who are referred to the CIS Program may also have co-occurring substance abuse problems. The CIS Program particularly seeks to serve those groups in our community who have traditionally received less access to mental health services.
All youth referred for CIS Program services must have prior enrollment in Medi-Cal.
