When your child is struggling, it can make life difficult for the whole family. If there’s trouble at home, at school, or both, it can be hard to know where to turn for help.
Emotional Wellness for Children
At CHD, we’re passionate about helping kids reach their potential. That includes emotional as well as physical wellness.
Many young people are dealing with emotional problems they have trouble describing. Illnesses such as depression and anxiety – often thought of as adult issues – affect children too.
With some of the leading specialists in pediatric behavioral healthcare in Western Massachusetts, we can get to the heart of the matter – often faster than you think. We can coordinate care with other providers and even treat your child at home or at school.
Common issues our therapists address include:
- Substance use
- Behavioral issues at home or school
- Depression, anxiety, anger, and mood swings
- Difficulty concentrating on schoolwork
- Aggressive, suicidal, or harmful behavior
The Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI) was created to keep children and adolescents with serious emotional and behavioral health needs in their homes and communities. We can assess your child and, if appropriate, pair you with a case manager who will schedule regular appointments.
As your child receives counseling, we’ll help you create structure at home in order to reinforce good behaviors, provide consistent discipline, and build trust through positive experiences.
For many, the strategies learned in children’s therapy help the whole family with communication, problem solving, and conflict resolution.
