Children’s Mental Health

Providing healing, safety, and support to children of all ages.

Children of all ages can face a range of behavioral, developmental, and emotional difficulties, such as depression, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, substance use disorder (SUD), and social isolation.

We work directly with you and your child to understand your individual and family needs and goals, providing the family with tools you can use to continue growing and thriving.

Care that works for YOU.


Our intake team will connect you to experienced staff at a program located throughout the five boroughs who will help assess your needs and set up services.


Our care plans are individualized to provide you the best care possible. Our team speaks a wide range of languages, including English, Spanish, Russian, and Haitian Creole.


We serve people of diverse religions, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, and physical and intellectual abilities, and accept Medicaid and most major insurance plans.

Supporting the mental health of our youngest New Yorkers is what we do.
