Child & Adolescent Mental Health Care

Mental Health Services provides a wide array of services and programs including outpatient clinics, community-based support and rehabilitative programs, housing and homeless services, intensive family services, and long-term support services. MH staff also identify individuals determined to have both Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD)  and Mental Illness and refer them for appropriate services.

Individuals, ages 18 or older, with severe and persistent mental illness (such as schizophrenia, major depression, bipolar disorder, or other severely disabling disorders requiring crisis resolution or ongoing and long-term support and treatment) have priority for receipt of adult services. Intensive services are targeted at children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbance and their families.

Individuals who receive our services are members of a state-sponsored plan for managed health care, the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP), or Medicare; have private insurance; or self-pay on a sliding fee scale based on the person’s ability to pay.

We would not be able to provide quality mental, physical and emotional health services without dedicated support from the community. Donations and volunteers provide us with the funds and abilities to help those in need.
