St. Vincent Family Center uniquely understands and responds to the needs of very young children. Toddlers and even infants can struggle with behavioral health. Some disorders may stem from exposure to abuse, neglect or trauma during those all-important early years as the brain is forming. Others may trace to issues that are at least partially genetic, such as Attention Deficit Disorder.
These disruptions to emotional health can lead to “acting out” behaviors such as tantrums. They also can interfere with a child’s ability to learn and acquire critical language and problem-solving skills.
Because of the complexities of children’s needs and the long-term impact on behavior if unresolved, we offer a wide range of specialized services to pre-schoolers. They include out-patient family counseling, in-home and community-based care, and even St. Vincent Pre-School Academy which prepares children for kindergarten by teaching both foundational academic skills as well as therapeutic techniques to better manage emotions and actions.
We also are equipped to provide the same services to Hispanic/Latina children.
Through your initial confidential consultation, our team of early childhood mental health experts can help you choose the level of care, type of expert and the frequency of treatment that best serves your child’s needs.
Children in elementary and middle school may experience more frequent conflicts and even greater learning loss if mental health issues are not treated appropriately. The downward spiral of anxiety and depression for example can be frustrating and beyond their ability to cope. Distracted and drained, they pay less attention in school, their grades suffer and they may drop out of sports or other favorite activities.
Further, some mental illnesses, such as obsessive/compulsive or bipolar disorders, only begin to appear in children as they near adolescence. If untreated, these teens and their families may soon feel caught in chaos.
St. Vincent Family Center chooses from a wide array of customized services to uniquely help and treat school-age children either inside our care center or out in the community. We offer outpatient family therapy, in-home and/or in-school care, the St. Vincent Prep Academy, a full-service school that combines academics with behavioral health treatment.
Some children enter our school because their home school requests that they receive treatment before returning to their original classroom. We also are equipped to provide the same range of services for Hispanic/Latina children.
Finally, we have a best-in-class residential program for children with mental illness and severe behavioral challenges.

Adolescence can be a difficult time for families, as natural physical health changes can cause more frequent stress and conflict. Often, compassionate, objective experts can intervene and help the family find new more positive ways to interact.
Teen years also mark the time when more serious mental health issues like schizophrenia and addiction begin to surface. Finally, it can be a period when youth experiment with high risk behaviors involving delinquency, alcohol or drugs, sex, cutting, anorexia, bullying and even thoughts of suicide.
St. Vincent Family Center has a team of experts uniquely qualified to respond to the behavioral health issues that can emerge during adolescence. These include out-patient treatment and care within the schools or in other community settings.
