Please see H.U.G.S. description at bottom.
Health Under Guided Systems (H.U.G.S.) is a collaborative interagency effort implemented by Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, to respond to the complex needs of children at risk of or with behavioral health problems in Collier County.
System of care components include screening, prevention/education and assessments by a licensed professional, improved access to care, system navigation and referral, and family strength based wraparound services.
Screenings available for ages 0-18. The first few years of life allow us to screen for emotional and behavioral wellness.
The ASQ-SE (Ages and Stages Questionnaire-social emotional) is the tool that we use for the initial screening. Our goal is to capture the children who have fallen through the cracks, and have unidentified needs that have not been treated. Our system navigators will assist families in obtaining follow up services if needed, and also to ensure timely access.
The Pediatric Symptom Checklist will be provided to parents of children ages 6-18 at Collier Health Services and private pediatrician sites. The parent/caregivers will be encouraged to complete this questionnaire to evaluate if the young person needs additional assessment. In addition, adolescents aged 9 and above will be encouraged to complete the checklist themselves.
