When children are having behavioral and emotional problems, these problems affect the whole family. Wellmore advocates that behavioral health treatment for children is most effective when parents and caregivers participate and there is collaboration with teachers and pediatricians. Our treatment and support includes and involves all family members to understand the problems and determine solutions that work for everyone. Therapy is more effective when the clinician, doctor, nurse, teacher, child and family are working collectively. We can be successful in reaching our goal of keeping more children and families safe, healthy and happy together. There is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available.
