Mental Health Assesment

Mental Health Assessments are completed by Qualified Mental Health Practitioners (QMHP) and last approximately 90 minutes.

A Circle of Care for Children and Families

Is your child having problems at home, in school or in the community, which are causing you distress? Are the
problems growing larger over time? Has there been an event that has caused a strong emotional reaction from your child? Is your child at risk of being referred to a more restrictive setting than public school? Is your young child too difficult for day care providers? If so, Mental Health for Children, Inc., dba The Child Center may be able to help.

Our mission is to provide individualized, diagnostic, therapeutic and educational services for the emotional and behavioral problems children exhibit in the home, school and community; provide integrated community based psychiatric and support services that are child centered, family driven and culturally competent; to advocate for preventative and educational services from community resources and to promote and/or develop other specialized services for children with serious mental, emotional and behavioral disorders and their families

Regardless of the service, our experience has proven that long-term results are always better when the child’s family is an integral team member. At The Child Center parents are involved in all phases of treatment services including assessment, the development of plans of care, the integration of education and treatment services as well as transition plans/services. The Child Center offers programs in Oregon in both Lane County and in Central Oregon.
