Bronx Family Mental Health Clinic

A child’s mental health can impact all aspects of his or her life, from development to social skills to success in school. It can also affect a child’s role in a family and the functioning of the whole family. For families facing a wide range of challenges associated with mental health, our Bronx Family Mental Health Clinic provides innovative, results-focused, and evidence-based approaches to help youth, ages 5-21, and their families cope, overcome, and thrive.
 
At our Bronx Family Mental Health Clinic in the Westchester Square neighborhood, we offer individual, family, group, and collateral therapy in English and Spanish to youth, their families, and others in their lives.

You Don’t Need to Feel Alone

There are an estimated 70,000 youth in the Bronx living with mental health disorders and diseases. Many go undiagnosed or untreated, creating negative consequences for children and families. For families with children who are showing signs of mental health issues – sadness, anger, lack of focus – or are having behavioral challenges at school, home, or in the community, we offer full mental health screenings, assessments and various forms of therapy to meet each child and family’s specific needs.
 
The Bronx Family Mental Health Clinic offers:
  • Psychosocial and Psychiatric Evaluation
  • Individual Therapy
  • Group and Family Therapy
  • Medication Management
  • Grief and Trauma Counseling
