A step-by-step guide for seeking help when your child is facing a behavioral health problem or crisis.
We diagnose and treat children and adolescents with a variety of problems such as depression, anxiety, attention deficits, and other behavioral problems. We also offer services within our inpatient and outpatient settings for the treatment of seriously emotionally disturbed children and adolescents. By working closely with the child, family, primary care provider, school personnel, and others, we ensure that assessment and treatment is designed to meet the needs of individual children and their families.
No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay as there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available.
Expanding Our Care
Children around the world are facing a mental health crisis. I am fortunate to live in a community that is rallying together to help us provide the best evidence-based care and services to help our region’s children, youth, and families.
