The behavioral health of children and adolescents is an ever-growing concern for parents and the community at large. That’s why Atlantic Behavioral Health offers services specific to the needs of younger patients, giving them the opportunity to express their anxieties, develop coping skills and better deal with relationship issues.
Our pediatric psychiatrists and licensed therapists provide children and teens with individual, group and family therapy. Counseling that includes parental and family involvement is central to our program and highly encouraged. In addition, we can help our patients manage any medications they may be taking to treat their mental health condition.
Services are available at Morristown Medical Center Outpatient Services and Newton Medical Center.
