Specialized Programs - Mental Health in Early Childhood
At Child Focus, we recognize the importance of identifying and treating mental health issues as early as possible and offering a wide range of services. Mental disorders affect not only the children and adults who have them, but also individuals around them. It is imperative that mental health issues are addressed in the context of a family partnership and all of Child Focus' behavioral health services require involvement of the primary caregiver. The critical tasks of mental health services include promoting healthy relationships, improving behavioral and emotional functioning, thus drastically increasing the likelihood of success in life.
Child Focus’ mental health programs are certified by Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) and accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Child Focus contracts with the Clermont County Mental Health & Recovery Board and Brown County Mental Health & Addiction Services Board.
Mental health disorders are complex and require care by a multidisciplinary treatment team that promotes high standards of care and best practice. Our Child Focus Behavioral Health staff specialize in treating child, adolescent and adult mental health issues. Our combined expertise utilizing a range of mental health professionals is used to deliver seamless, comprehensive care to the individual. Learn more about our team by clicking the directory below.
