Wraparound with Intensive Services      
Young Women

Wraparound with Intensive Services (WISe) is a team based approach to helping children with complex behavioral needs. The team works collaboratively to create and implement an individualized plan of care for the youth.


At the core of the team are the youth and their family. They are the guiding force throughout the WISe process.

Our team at Friends of Youth will work with families to provide intensive mental health services to support not only the child but also the family.

It's a new, collaborative way to help youth with behavioral health challenges. It is available to Medicaid eligible children and youth 21 years old and under.

Youth who are 13 and older can request a WISe screen to see if they qualify for services. Youth under 13 will need permission from a parent or guardian.

What WISe does:

  • Provides support for youth with complex emotional and behavioral needs.
  • Developes a care plan individualized for your child and your family.
  • Offers support and services at a place and time that works for your child and your family.
  • Helps identify resources and support.
  • Provides access for crisis support.


Who is on the team?
The youth and their family, Friends of Youth staff, therapists, social workers, case managers, counselors, teachers, and school administrators. The family can provide other supports including extended family, friends, and community members.

Where does Friends of Youth offer WISe services?
Our catchment area includes Snoqualmie Valley, Issaquah, Tahoma, Riverview and Skykomish School Districts.

When might your family need WISe services?
If your child is experiencing challenging behavior and traditional services don't help, is at risk of harming themselves or others, or needs a more individualized plan.
