Liberty Healthcare is now providing mental health assessments for children and young adults up to the age of 18, as part of the Youth Empowerment Services (YES) program and the settlement agreement for the Jeff D. lawsuit.

The YES program was created and tasked with transforming mental health for children in Idaho as part of the settlement. As part of that transformation, families of children with serious emotional disturbances and functional impairments may now (as of Jan. 1) be eligible for Medicaid coverage if their income is up to 300 percent of the federal poverty limit. Liberty will provide the necessary initial assessments at no cost to the family seeking YES program eligibility.

If you know of a child who needs mental health services, including respite, please contact Liberty Healthcare at 1-877-305-3469. Learn more here and here.
