Children and Adolescents are Often Impacted by Mental Health Issues
There are a range of mental health disorders that first appear in children, and early treatment can have a huge impact on both short and long term development. We provide assessment and treatment for a variety of disorders that first appear in childhood, including depression, autism spectrum disorder and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Childhood anxiety disorders, sometimes beginning as early as age two or three, can severely affect a child’s ability to conduct daily activities, perform in school, or develop relationships. The conditions have long-term consequences if untreated, with most anxiety disorders continuing into adolescence and adulthood. In addition, behavioral disorders can impact success in school and relationships with peers and family members.
We Can Help
The Ross Center’s Child and Adolescent Program focuses on providing state-of-the-art treatment by highly specialized and trained child and adolescent psychiatrists and psychologists. Our specialists utilize proven treatment protocols that are designed to engage children in fun and creative ways as they learn to tackle their fears and alter behaviors.
The treatment process begins with in-depth assessment services to precisely differentiate learning and academic difficulties from social and emotional problems. With proper treatment at the Ross Center, your child will experience positive changes in behavior, improved performance in school, and healthier relationships – leading to better long-term health and well-being. In addition to individual and group therapy for children, we incorporate parents into treatment and offer family therapy and parenting skills training.
