Our Child Behavioral Health Services Include:

Have you noticed mental or behavioral health issues with your child? Does your child struggle with socialization or have unmanageable emotional outbursts? Our child behavioral health services include comprehensive diagnostic assessments and psychological testing.

The Watson outpatient mental and behavioral health child therapy services consist of individual therapy, social skills therapy groups, and medication management for children ages 3-21. Our experienced psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists utilize various therapy approaches such as: trauma-informed care, cognitive behavior therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy. Our skills clinicians are also trained to provide therapy for PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

Starting in January 2021, the Watson Institute offers IBHS for children, replacing the Wraparound Services program. Intensive Behavioral Health Services help children with behavioral health needs to thrive in their communities, at home, and in school.
