Children who have experienced abuse or trauma are at increased risk for developing emotional and behavioral difficulties. The mental health assessment includes an evaluation of common difficulties children may have. This appointment lasts approximately 1.5 – 2 hours and includes the caregiver and child each meeting with a trained therapist. Additionally, caregivers and children ages 6 and older answer questionnaires about the child’s emotions and behaviors. The results are used to help guide recommendations for the child and family. Mental health assessments are provided at no cost to the child or family.
