Mental Health Care
Mental health conditions, whether genetic or experienced as a result of trauma or violence, can create challenges that affect the growth and development of children and the ability for adults to live full lives. With professional treatment, emotional and mental health issues can be successfully addressed and meaningfully managed in ways that provide space for personal growth and progress in relationships, at school, or at work.
Mental health care at Foothill Family includes individualized treatment plans to help children and adults, individuals and families find new direction and cope with life’s challenges. An array of treatment options and services are available based on each client’s situation and responsiveness and can include play therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, parent-child interaction therapy and other various Evidence-Based Practices, and medication support.
Care can be provided in homes, at schools, in the community, or at any of Foothill Family’s locations and often includes linkages to additional community resources in support of treatment and care.
