Mvskoke Nation Youth Services can't take care of all of the youth by ourselves, so we rely on partners to help us fill in where we can't. Below are some of those partners; if you want to know more about them, simply click on their picture to go to their website!

The Behavioral Health (BH) Program was originally started in the early 1980’s with just two staff members. Their primary focus at that time was referrals for residential substance abuse treatment with only some mental health treatment provided. By the BH program was becoming more established with four staff members providing both mental health and substance abuse services at three clinic sites.
Since that time the program has been awarded six federal grants to allow growth of services and staff. The program focus has changed from crisis driven services to early prevention and intervention services and they now provide services in the six Creek Nation Health Clinics, 17 public schools and the Eufaula Boarding School. Services for children, adolescents, adults, and elders now include:
Parent Child Interaction therapy (PCIT)
In-Service Training/Community Education
Substance Abuse Screening and Treatment
Psychological Evaluation and Treatment
Screening Brief Intervention and Treatment (SBIRT) in Health Clinics
Suicide/ Crisis Intervention
