Mental Health Treatment
Well-trained mental health professionals will work with you to create a treatment plan that best meets your child’s needs. The first step in identifying the right treatment is a thorough evaluation. During the evaluation, the clinician will ask questions to learn more about your child's history, symptoms, school performance, relationships, and the events leading up to the distress. It often takes many sessions to collect the right information for a comprehensive evaluation. During this time, the clinician may also ask you or your child to take some simple screening tests and other assessments to better understand the nature of your child’s concerns. The tests are to make sure your child gets the best treatment and no hidden concerns are missed.
