Family and Children Mental Health
Mental Health Services for Families, Children and Teens
Services for children and families are offered in an outpatient setting in one of our offices - see below - or community-based settings - click here - in your child's school or, depending on the issues which need to be addressed, perhaps in your own home.
A young man who was referred from his middle school for truancy and behavioral issues has shown significant improvement since receiving services. The student had previously been described by one school staff member as “one of the most difficult children to be around in the school”. This same individual now says that the work Seven Counties did with the youngster was “a miracle”, as the child has become a “gentleman” and “one of my favorite students”.
If you think your child might benefit from mental health outpatient counseling, you’ve come to the right place! Seven Counties offers many treatment services, all designed to help children maximize their potential, do well in school, form healthy relationships, and improve family interactions.

Seven Counties Offers Community-Based Services
What are Community-Based Services?
Simply put, community-based services are services provided on location in the community, usually at home or in a school. These natural settings are ideal for helping families create effective, practical solutions for the real-life challenges they face. Community-based services work to create change for families on several levels. Therapists are trained to identify the family’s issues and how those issues can be addressed with the entire family. Members of the community-based services team are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so they can respond to family needs any time of the day.
Goals for community-based services are developed with family members to improve family functioning, reduce family conflict, increase compliance with household and community rules, reduce risk behavior, improve decision-making skills, increase positive parenting strategies, and connect to community resources. Overall, these services provide families with structured and timely assistance that immediately addresses their issues and results in positive change quickly.
