Good mental health enables us to think clearly, feel confident and act purposefully as we face life’s challenges. Like physical health, mental health is crucial at every stage in life. Behavioral and emotional problems in children and adolescents can occur at any time, in any family, and in any community. These problems are devastating to families, costly to communities and the health care system. They can lead to school failure, family conflicts, drug abuse, violence or suicide. Biology, environment, or a mix of both can cause social or emotional problems in children and youth. Fortunately, these problems in families, children and adolescents can be successfully treated, preventing more costly difficulties later in life.
At our learning center each child will be involved in the development of a unique and holistic program based on the strengths, needs and aspirations. The goal of our strength based approach is to enrich, empower, and facilitate success with our children and families.
A critical component of our sessions and meetings will be the trusting relationship, which will be developed between the behavioral health care professionals, families and children. This, together with a range of techniques and interventions, enable children to overcome their challenges and enhance or modify the way they think and behave.
