My Child's Behavior

  • Like many adults, children and adolescents suffer from mental, emotional and behavioral problems. Today, approximately six million American adolescents are diagnosed with clinical depression. Countless others live with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, oppositional defiant behaviors, bipolar disorder and other psychotic disorders including schizophrenia.

    Belmont Behavioral Health realizes that childhood and adolescence can be a very trying and difficult time. Our professional staff works with each child and his or her family to develop a personalized treatment plan. We offer a variety of programs and services and are sensitive to the unique problems our youth face in today's society.
