The earlier a child’s behavioral needs can be assessed and addressed, the more successful that child will be throughout his or her life.
Our Mental Health program serves over 700 children and their families throughout Alameda and Santa Clara counties with the goal of children and parents living their best life.
Effective behavioral health programs have reverberating impacts throughout the community. When a single child’s needs are met, classrooms become a more productive learning space for all children. When parents are given the tools they need, the home environment becomes more harmonious for the entire family.
Some indicators that your child could benefit from our Mental Health program include:
- Having trouble getting along with his or her peers
- Experiencing challenges separating from parents or other adults
- Hurting himself or herself
- Hurting others
- Feeling afraid easily
Our highly skilled Mental Health specialists are able to identify and diagnose children at the most crucial time in their development. Our holistic approach provides in-home visitations, trainings with parent/caregivers and teachers, parent-child therapy, developmental screenings and assessment services, and behavioral intervention. We also offer support services for teachers and families. Our success is measured by the success of our families – parents who are able to enjoy their children, and children who are able to express themselves in productive ways.
