To reach their potential, young people don’t need labels. They need to be understood.
He has trouble making friends. She is not working up to her potential at school. She is subject to mood swings. He is isolating himself in his room.
Whether you’re a parent, a guardian, or a professional who works with young people, all you want is for them to succeed. That’s why it’s so difficult to watch youth struggle more than they should. The key to unlocking their potential is to understand what is happening and what they need. That’s why we founded the Masonic Center for Youth and Families.
The mission of the Masonic Center for Youth and Families is to offer quality mental health services driven by our patient’s needs rather than by artificially-imposed limitations; to research clinical effectiveness of a thoughtful, integrated treatment approach to actual and diverse patient populations; and to add our voice and experience to the public debate about effective assessment and treatment of children with behavioral and mental health issues.
