What is MYPAC?

Brentwood Behavioral Healthcare is the only acute care facility in the state that is MYPAC-certified. MYPAC (Mississippi Youth Program Around the Clock) is a certified wraparound outpatient service for adolescents, designed to administer care within the youth’s home.

What is wraparound? Wraparound is a planning process that follows a series of steps to help children and their families realize their hopes and dreams. The wraparound process also helps make sure youth receive treatment while growing up and in their homes and communities. It brings people together from the lives of every family member. With help from one or more facilitators, the family and their loved ones coordinate their activities and blend their perspectives of the family’s situation.

  • Referral to professional supports who are not yet involved, but may be needed to help the child and/or family.
  • The child and family work with a wraparound facilitator to create a team made up of the family, natural supports such as neighbors and friends, informal supporters like a church or coach and professional supports as needed.
  • The family’s team develops one plan that all parties utilize. The plan is based on strengths of the child and family. Each team member including the child has responsibilities in the plan.
  • Transition planning with the aim of ensuring the family can manage when the formal wraparound process ends.
  • It is driven by underlying needs.
  • It is grounded in a perspective of patient strengths.
  • It is supported by an effective team process.
  • It is determined by families.
  • The plans developed are flexible and unique to each family.
  • Plans that do not meet the needs of the family are reviewed and changed.

A wraparound facilitator works with the family to identify people who know the family best and then engages those people to the wraparound process. These people form a support team that works together to achieve the goals chosen by your family.
