Support for children and youth from birth to age 18.
How We Can Help
We believe in the value and potential of every child, in focusing on children’s strengths and gifts as we work to help them overcome their challenges. And we believe in second chances. And third. And fourth.
We believe in whatever number of chances it takes for children and adolescents to gain the skills they need to move ahead with confidence and resiliency.
From our REACH early intervention program for children from birth to age three; to counseling and psychiatry services that help young people cope with anxiety, depression, school problems, family conflict, and the effects of abuse, trauma, or substance use; to our PREP program for adolescents and young adults who are addressing mental health challenges – we meet young people where they are, with full respect for who they are and who they might become.
REACH Early Intervention Program
We work with children from birth to age three who have various risk factors or developmental delays. REACH forms a partnership with parents to assure their children get the best possible start, and we assist families with their child’s transition to preschool. Our home-based services are available to families in Hampshire County, Franklin County, and the North Quabbin region.
Counseling and Psychiatry Services
Our experienced therapists provide individual and group therapy for children and adolescents who need help coping with anxiety, depression, school problems, family conflict, and the effects of abuse, trauma, or substance use. We also offer an adolescent Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) program for young people who meet the guidelines for this comprehensive outpatient service.
Our Prevention and Recovery in Early Psychosis (PREP) Program offers comprehensive outpatient treatment for young adults between the ages of 16 to 30 years old who have had an experience of psychosis within the previous three years. The PREP Program offers group support, activities such as cooking and group meals, individual therapy, psychiatric services, vocational counseling, family and network meetings and support, and more.
