San Diego Unified School District: Juvenile Justice Family Intervention Team

The Juvenile Justice Family Intervention Team (JJ-FIT) provides two treatment modalities for San Diego Unified School District youth who are on probation and their families, the first being Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST), an evidence-based intensive family treatment intervention for youth ages 12-16 who meet criteria for either Oppositional Defiant Disorder or Conduct Disorder. The second treatment is Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), which provides individual and family treatment to youth 12-18 years old who present with a serious and persistent mental illness, such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, depression, and other psychotic disorders.
