WISe Program Parent Partner
We’ve expanded our services!
Wraparound with Intensive Services, or WISe, is a new approach to helping Medicaid-eligible children, youth, and their families with intensive mental health care. Services are available in home and community settings and offer a system of care based on the individualized need of the child or youth.
Ryther is a recognized leader in behavioral health services for children, youth and their families facing complex challenges. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive services and innovative treatments. We guide, coach and teach so that every child/youth and family we work with may experience new ways of thinking, develop positive relationships, and realize a better life.
Ryther seeks to create a work environment that reflects the diverse community that it serves. People of color, LGBTQIA, and multi-lingual individuals encouraged to apply. Our diversity is our strength!
The WISe Parent Partner utilizes their own experiences as the parent/caregiver of a youth who has experienced significant emotional or behavioral issues, and involvement in one or more child serving systems, to deliver direct supportive services to parents/caregivers of a youth referred to or receiving wraparound services.

They connect families to supports and resources within their community, and engage youth and family in the wraparound process. They are advocates for youth/family needs within the team and community, and provide services in client homes, schools or other convenient community locations. Parent Partners have their own life experience of parenting a child with behavioral health needs which helps them connect with and provide hope to other caregivers.
