Behavioral Health

Stressors and social pressures effect children today more than every before, yet mental health is often overlooked in the pediatric setting. Whether it is divorce, abuse, neglect, or emotion overloads, our children want to have their feelings validated and may need to communicate individually or in family situations with a licensed therapist. Rocking Horse Community Health Center provides professional social workers, therapists and child psychiatrists in a pediatric setting to help children modify behaviors, clarify self concepts and build healthy relationships. Our behavioral staff works closely with the pediatricians to assure that our patients receive the best support possible. Offering therapy and support groups for children who have been bullied or are bullying, for children with ADHD, for grandparents raising their grandchildren, for mothers with after birth stress and for many other groups is another way Rocking Horse reaches out to meet patient need.
