Children's Mental HealthServices
East Texas families and parents don’t always know how to get help when they find their children facing mental health challenges.
National statistics show that one out of five children will have a mental illness during childhood. Children diagnosed and treated are more likely to succeed at home and in the community.
Burke services support families to make positive changes that help children foster resilience and recover from mental health challenges.
Mental health services start with a thorough assessment and the development of a plan to address goals identified by the child and family. Services to the child and family may include:
- Crisis intervention
- Skills training and development
- Supportive employment
- Medication training and support
- Case management
- Peer services (family partner support services)
Burke provides comprehensive mental health services to children who may be experiencing a mental health emergency.
