Our Approach to Care

Not all care is created equal. In fact, care that is truly evidence-based, compassionate and personalized makes all the difference. That’s why the Child Mind Institute began offering treatment for children and young adults with mental health and learning challenges over a decade ago. Our clinical centers and telehealth practice continue to offer solutions for each family’s unique needs, because every child deserves to thrive.

How We Work

What makes the Child Mind Institute different? Our unique model delivers gold-standard evaluations and treatment as part of a time-tested philosophy of care:

Evidence-based treatments (EBTs)

Available treatments include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), behavioral therapy, parent management training (PMT) and exposure and response prevention (ERP). These approaches are rigorously proven to work. Our team of psychiatrists may also offer medication treatment, alone or in combination with therapy when it’s appropriate.

Evidence-based

Results-Driven

We don’t look at therapy as a process that never ends. We set goals with the child and the family, track progress, and adjust course as needed — all with an eye to getting each child back to their best life as soon as possible.

Results-Driven

World-class Clinicians Who Care

To be a part of the Child Mind Institute’s clinical team, you have to be one of the best and care deeply about kids. It takes skill, experience and compassion to make the biggest impact. To meet our team, please see “Who We Are” below.

World-class

Thorough Evaluation & Accurate Diagnosis

Diagnosis drives treatment. You can’t solve a problem you don’t understand. So, we perform exceptionally careful evaluations and our clinicians have the experience to make the right diagnosis. That’s why the Child Mind Institute is known nationally for second opinions and treating difficult cases.

Thorough

Team Approach

Many of the kids we see have challenges across multiple areas. So our multidisciplinary group of over 45 psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and learning specialists review each case holistically, build a custom team, and work together to provide coordinated care so each child can thrive.

Team

Individualized Treatment Plans

At the Child Mind Institute, your child will never get lost in the crowd. Unlike large medical centers, we’re exclusively focused on children’s mental health, learning, and development. Our team develops and continually optimizes personalized treatment plans for every child.

Individualized

Intensive Treatment Options

For some children with severe symptoms, or families traveling long distances, we offer intensive behavioral interventions. These may involve several hours a day for several days a week. They can result in big changes in a short time.

Intensive

Family Involvement

Mental health disorders affect the whole family, and the family environment is critical for the success of treatment. At the Child Mind Institute, you will be involved at every step of the process.

Family

Cost and Financial Aid

Our model of care requires a dedicated staff to make it work, and we need to charge for their services. We do not accept insurance, but will provide the documentation required for out-of-network reimbursement if offered through your plan. We do offer financial aid, which may reduce your costs based on demonstrated need. We do not run our clinical care for profit. Any excess revenue goes to support financial aid.

Who We Are

We’ve assembled one of the finest teams of psychologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, social workers, and speech-language pathologists in the country. Explore our directory to get a sense of their backgrounds, and why they choose to do what they do at the Child Mind Institute.
