Child Behavioral Health

Children are our future, and yet, many of them struggle and suffer every day with behavioral health issues that have gone undetected or have not been treated. At the CHCS Child Behavioral Health campus we are committed to providing the services and support that are needed to ensure that children, youth, Intellectually Developmentally Disabled (IDD) individuals, and their families can thrive and be safe: at home, school, and in community.

From birth to adolescence (0 to 18+ years of age), our care centers offer a continuum of different innovative and outcome driven interventions that focus on improving quality of life, preventing and minimizing crisis and reducing the need for expensive hospitalization. Committed to providing customized treatment, targeted programming is offered to connect and assist individuals and their families in weaving a safety net to effectively address the multiplicity of needs and challenges they may face.

Embracing a wraparound concept, we offer the appropriate treatment strategies and evidence-based interventions, which include the following services:

Early Child Support
Developmental screening; Classroom intervention, support, and training; and Behavioral shaping.
Mental Health Outpatient Care
Skills Training, Counseling, Case Management, Parent Supports, Crisis Triage, and Crisis Mobile Outreach Team.
Substance Abuse Services
Screening and assessment, Substance abuse counseling, Case management, Family support, and Psychiatric consultation.
Medical Treatment

System of Care Supports

Hope and healing exist when children and families are able to move beyond their limitations and challenges and get the help and supports they need to succeed in life and improve their wellbeing.
