Helping Children and Families for 25 Years

Family Therapist with Family

As children's bodies grow and change into adolescence and young adulthood, their minds are growing and changing too. At MultiCare Behavioral Health, we understand this means that young people with mental health challenges require a special kind of care and expertise — and that their families require a special kind of support.

MultiCare Mental Health Programs for Children and Families

Our programs for children and families include:

  • Child & Family Services: We specialize in helping families help their children address problems of mood, behavior, relationships and trauma so they can reach normal developmental milestones. Learn more about our Child & Family Services program.
  • Children's Therapy Unit: Behavioral health services are among the many services provided at Mary Bridge Children's Therapy Unit.
