Child Mental Health Services

Children and adolescents can also experience mental health issues. However, some of the signs and symptoms are expressed quite differently than in adults. While not all symptoms result in a diagnosed mental illness, it’s important to be aware of behavior changes and talk to your child’s doctor about your concerns. Adults may notice some of these common symptoms in children including:

 

  • Changes in school performance

  • Avoiding friends or social activities

  • Excessive worry or anxiety

  • Hyperactive behavior

  • Frequent or intensifying nightmares

  • Frequent or intensifying outbursts of anger or disobedience

 

Core Services

Child and Youth Mental Health Services provide child-centered, family-focused, trauma-informed mental health treatment for children and youth between the ages of 3 and 17, and their families.  Individuals in care participate in a full-service array that is tailored to their individual strengths, needs, abilities, preferences, and recovery goals. We provide a variety of developmentally appropriate services.

Care Coordination

Care Coordination services help families create, monitor, and evaluate a care plan and access community resources. Care coordinators serve individuals and families by identifying needs, helping resolve problems, negotiating services, and linking with available resources. Care Coordinators encourage individuals to identify persons they want to be involved in their recovery and services, and they assist in involving family and members of the individual's support network in services as the individual desires. The concept of recovery is central to services, and the involvement of family and developing healthy support systems is a large part of the process. Care Coordinators can facilitate access to medical, social, educational, and other appropriate services and serve as the lead contact for coordinating Spindletop services.

Skills Training

Skills Training is a community-based service that is designed to increase an individual’s ability to cope with mental health symptoms in a more effective way. Examples of some concerns that are addressed through skills training include anger management, social skills, transitional skills for adulthood, and parenting techniques specific to raising children and youth with mental health conditions.

Psychiatric Evaluation and Medication Management

Medication services are provided to individuals who could benefit from psychiatric medication to address and alleviate symptoms related to their diagnosis. An initial psychiatric evaluation will be conducted with the prescriber to establish a medication regimen. After the initial appointment, routine follow-up appointments will follow for medication management.
