Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services
An average of 1 in 10 children and adolescents in the United States experiences a mental health issue each year. Left untreated, poor mental health can effect a child or teen's ability to learn, develop friendships, engage well with their families, and can even threaten their safety. Community Reach Center provides private, confidential, evidence-based counseling for children, teens, and their families at any of the Center's five outpatient offices, in most Adams County public schools, and in other community-based settings.
