Children and young adults deserve a safe space.
If you were to stare into the eyes of a child who has seen more in her lifetime than most adults could ever imagine, let alone process, how would you begin to heal the past? It starts here and now.
Behavioral Health Treatment Options for Ages 0 to 21
Eggleston Behavioral Health Services (EBHS) is a county contracted, outpatient program providing a community-based approach to behavioral health. Too many children and young adults in our neighborhoods suffer from chronic and persistent mental illness, serious emotional disturbance, and/or co-occurring substance abuse disorders. Without the help needed, compromised mental health will continue to escalate with age and, in turn, adversely affect longevity.
Mental illness is prevalent amongst those exposed to violence, ongoing physical or emotional abuse and sexual assault. For some, mental health disorders develop as a preventative measure to what the mind cannot handle. For other children and teens, depression and anxiety are the backlash of symptoms that indicate an overabundance of emotional hardships, without reprieve. The repercussions can seem never-ending.
