Edgewood supports youth and their families through life's challenges with a full continuum of behavioral health services.
Our work focuses on issues such as mental health, family relationships and life skills, and our programs range from prevention and early intervention to community-based, day and residential treatment.
The Transition Age Youth (TAY) Full Service Partnership (FSP) program provides intensive community-based mental health services and support to 50 young adults (ages 16-25) in San Mateo County. The program relies on a diverse staff and innovative program model to effectively meet the needs of this underserved and often marginalized population. Young adults are typically referred to our TAY FSP program when areas of their life are stressed by the symptoms of their mental illness and/or complex trauma. To treat each young adult's unique needs, we apply a holistic team-based approach. Program services includes mental health treatment, case management and care coordination, skills coaching, educational/employment exploration, family support, and crisis prevention/support.
The Family Support Manager oversees the family support component of the program, including the direct supervision of two Family Partners. Using their own personal lived experience raising and supporting loved ones dealing with significant mental health and other challenges, the Family Support Manager exhibits a deep understanding of the daily challenges and barriers facing the natural supports of our young adult clients. This role works in alignment with other TAY FSP program leadership roles and collaborates on effective strengths-based service delivery.
As Family Support Manager, you will be supervising our Family Partners as they offer support, empathy, and nonjudgmental compassion to anyone our transition age youth identify as "family." We work with a culturally and clinically diverse group of young adults who are at the beginning of their journey to adulthood. This means we often meet family, caregivers, friends and partners of our young adult clients when are under great stress, sometimes for years - just as their loved ones are suddenly gaining the right to determine their own treatment plan and path forward. This is a major transition for everyone in the life of a young adult.
The work is not easy, which is why we place a high value on your self-care, our tight-knit team, and supervisor support and availability. The work is incredibly rewarding - you have the opportunity to build an environment that encourages the family and other natural supports to have hope, and to learn how to help their loved one achieve independence, rebuild and maintain their health, and strengthen family and peer connections.
