We fill in the missing piece: mental health services.
When a student does something that is disruptive or unsafe in a learning environment, schools need a mental health partner like the Bronx Family Mental Health Clinic to address the root causes of this behavior. Unlike the revolving door of an emergency room, our comprehensive therapeutic services involve the whole family—the first step to transformational change. And if an incident occurs at school, we are just a phone call away.
For human services agencies
You are providing vital services to vulnerable children and families, among whom the challenges of poverty and trauma can lead to mental health challenges. With the Bronx Family Mental Health Clinic as your partner, you can continue to support the child you support while we attend to the child’s mental and emotional health. We can conduct the psychological and educational assessment to see if there is an underlying mental health disorder or intellectual/developmental disability.
A comprehensive approach
Our exceptional bilingual staff include psychiatrists, psychologists, a team of licensed therapists, and educational advocates. We use evidence-based, results-focused approaches to get to the root of a child’s emotional, behavioral, and mental health disorders. Many of our patients have experienced trauma and poverty, which often play a role in emotional wellbeing. We involve the entire family in therapy, and connect families to resources so they can enjoy a more secure life.
The Bronx Family Mental Health Clinic offers:
- Convenient office hours for patients.
- Individual, family, group, and collateral therapy.
- Psychosocial and Psychiatric Evaluation.
- Individual Therapy.
- Group and Family Therapy.
- Medication Management.
- Grief and Trauma Counseling.
