Why LSI

Eleven-year-old Scott struggled with anger issues. He lived in and out of residential treatment for years to improve his behavior, but nothing was working. When he came to Beloit, Scott began to see a change in himself. He and his Beloit team collaborated to find the coping skills that worked best for his anger management. He especially likes to practice deep breathing to calm down.

She found the resources she needed to retake control of her mental health and is now passionate about helping other youth, providing support, empowerment, and a listening ear to current residents at Bremwood.

Programs

Our Psychiatric Medical Institute for Children (PMIC) serves children who display inappropriate behaviors, have difficulty with social skills, or are unable to enjoy daily life due to mental illness. Our Enhanced PMIC program is for children with significant mental health issues. They may struggle with lower intellectual functioning, developmental delays, or other disorders or inappropriate behaviors.

Bremwood’s Woodhaven Shelter offers temporary, safe emergency shelter for youth awaiting community services or out-of-home services.

CWES provides youth with a safe, supportive out-of-home placement during a crisis. Bremwood’s campus provides 47-hour crisis beds for youth while LSI staff members connect them with any community supports or resources they may need to thrive.

Our Crisis Intervention is a free 21-day program for Black Hawk County families facing a crisis. We’ll facilitate a team meeting for families to discuss community resources that may help, including therapy, mentoring, help for substance abuse, and more. Call our crisis hotline at 319.239.0469. If your family is in need of immediate care, please dial 9-1-1.

The goal of FGCS is to create a safe living environment within our residential treatment centers for youth in foster care, while also engaging their families to make sure they are reunified as soon as possible.

This service empowers youth to work toward independence and self-sufficiency while still receiving support and supervision. Individuals build skills while attending school, working, and developing other life skills.
