Children's Behavioral Health Services

Easter Seals UCP is Dedicated to Strengthening Families

Knowing when or who to turn to for help during crisis and stressful situations is challenging.  Easterseals UCP continues to provide support through the COVID-19 pandemic to help children and their families. We offer services and resources for families and parents who are:

  • Frustrated and discouraged by new, unexplained and unexpected behavioral changes
  • Involved with the legal system
  • Experiencing unusual and unhealthy arguments on a regular basis
  • Noticing significant changes in mood and interactions with others
  • Considering out of home treatment options for their child

We provide comprehensive, office and community based mental health services for families with children from birth to 18 years of age.  Services are intended to increase resiliency by building on strengths and community supports to help families care for children in their own homes and provide the tools for children to thrive.  We strive to provide services that are research based and proven to provide effective solutions and outcomes for the child and family.
