Seneca's Mobile Response Teams support families in serious distress with immediate crisis intervention and mental health services. The teams travel to wherever the youth and family may be in the community, in order to provide effective intervention at the height of the crisis. The Bilingual (Spanish/English) Crisis Clinician provides family-based mental health counseling, therapy, crisis intervention, and case management services to children and families. Crisis Clinicians are members of a treatment team and provide services at the program site and in the community, including hospitals, schools, and family homes.

Seneca Family of Agencies is committed to providing traditionally marginalized communities a network of outstanding mental health, community based, and educational services. Celebrating diversity and creating a culture of inclusion increases creativity, innovation, problem solving, and teamwork. Seneca’s agency-wide DEI Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve.
