Versatile Outpatient Services
Our pediatric mental health services are available in two distinct outpatient formats to suit varying needs:
  1. Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): This comprehensive program engages children in a blend of group therapy, family counseling, and experiential therapies like art and music.
  2. Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Designed for less frequent sessions, this program focuses on individual talk therapy and medication management strategies.
Balancing Education and Mental Well-being
We firmly believe that no family should have to compromise between a child’s education and their mental health. That’s why we collaborate with local educational institutions and educators to provide age-appropriate learning experiences. As your child progresses through our programs, we also facilitate a seamless transition back to school by working closely with students, schools, and families.
