Behavioral Health Services

By working with schools, parents and others involved in children’s lives, we can identify and treat behavioral health disorders early. By addressing problems, we can help a child learn how to manage his or her illness, prevent costly crises and enable the child to get on track with peers, achieve academic success and lead a productive, independent life.
