The child will need a comprehensive assessment at Centered Spirit, which involves input from the parents/guardian, child and other important people, such as grandparents or teachers.
If the assessment concludes that the child meets “medical necessity” for the services, then a referral may be made for mentoring or respite.
“Medical necessity” means that the child has behavioral health conditions that will be improved by participating in counseling and other behavioral health services, which may include mentoring or respite
AHCCCS sets limits on the number of respite hours that can be used in a calendar year and some AHCCCS plans do not approve respite services.
