Mental Health: Child/Adolescent Day Treatment

Offered by Mercyhealth Behavioral Health Services

Our staff has the professional experience to understand your difficulties as a parent, and to guide your children and family through challenging times toward lasting solutions.

Our typical participants have:

  • Behavioral symptoms such as impulsiveness, tantrums, chronic failure to comply with rules, physical aggression, social withdrawal, and disruption in classroom settings
  • Dual diagnosis – primary mental health issues complicated by experimental or use of drugs or alcohol.
  • Emotional/cognitive symptoms such as irritability, depression, anxiety, and poor concentration
  • Difficulties functioning at their highest potential in school, home, or community settings

Group sessions — Our treatment programs offer group counseling facilitated by trained therapists. In a group, children and adolescents can address psychological, social and biological issues with other young people who are experiencing the same concerns.

Day treatment — Here, children and adolescents meet weekly with a therapist for a one-to-one counseling session and/or a family session. All participants meet with a psychiatrist, or a nurse practitioner with specialized training in psychiatry, for admission, follow-up and discharge.

We offer 3 levels of care for children aged 5 to 17.

If your child needs help, or you would like more information on how our child and adolescent services program can help your family, please call us at (608) 741-2117. After a short phone interview, we will determine which program best meets your needs.
