We never give up on a child.
More than 40 percent of Bronx children 18 and under live in poverty. The everyday stress of their lives puts them at risk of behavioral and socio-emotional disorders. Such behavior can mask underlying issues, such as mental illness and intellectual/developmental disabilities, that make it hard for them to succeed.
Our mission is to support children with a full range of therapeutic services to get to the root of their emotional and behavioral disorders. Through psychological testing and educational assessment, we identify unknown problems and address them. Our licensed mental health professionals get children and teens talking through individual and group therapy. As family dynamics can play a role in a child’s wellbeing, we involve the entire family in therapy and connect families to the right resources so they can enjoy a more balanced life.
We support children and teens as long as it takes to put them on a positive path. Call us to find out how our evidence-based, results-focused approach can help youth ages 5-21 transform their lives.
For families with children who are showing signs of mental health issues—sadness, anger, lack of focus—or are having behavioral challenges at school, home, or in the community, we offer full mental health screenings, assessments and various forms of therapy to meet each child and family’s specific needs.
We offer the following in both English and Spanish to youth, their families, and others in their lives:
- Psychosocial and Psychiatric Evaluation
- Individual Therapy
- Group and Family Therapy
- Medication Management
- Grief and Trauma Counseling
