CHILDREN WITH EMOTIONAL DISTURBANCE

MCCMH offers an array of services and supports to meet the needs of children with emotional disturbance and their families.  Our services to children are offered using a family centered approach.  We work with children and families to strengthen relationships and improve functioning at home, school, and in the community.  We work to nurture resiliency in children and families — the ability to “bounce back” from setbacks and to build on successes, despite the challenges that may be faced in life.

If you feel that any of the services listed and described in the pull down menu may be helpful to your child or family, click on the “Calling Access Center” tab to learn more about starting services.
