Our Programs and Services
For over 60 years we have served as the safety net for thousands of families in Mid-Fairfield county who need high-quality, affordable mental health services for their children and adolescents.
Serving the communities of Norwalk, Westport, Weston, Wilton, Darien, New Canaan, and Stamford.
Our Outpatient Children's Clinic provides children and adolescents (ages 5-21) who struggle with behavioral or emotional challenges an opportunity to work one-on-one with a trained therapist in a safe and caring environment.
Our school-based programs facilitate access to treatment by enabling children to receive trauma-focused therapy and support services in the schools they attend. Services provided include individual, group, and family therapy, care coordination, advocacy, and case management.
Our Child First program pairs families in need with a clinical therapist/care coordination team who work with the family to reduce parental and familial stress, build strong nurturing parent-child relationships, and promote healthy child development. 
For children and adolescents struggling with social anxiety, poor social skills or inattentiveness, group therapy offers opportunities to improve social skills, peer relationships, problem solving, and team building skills.
Our Prospects Extended Day Treatment program offers intensive, clinical treatment services to children who present with serious behavioral health challenges at school, home, and in the community.
Our community-based programs are designed to help address the mental health and wellness needs of the community and provide linkages to other social service organizations in the greater Norwalk area.
Working with community partners, we offer free, non-clinical enrichment programs (e.g., soccer and baseball clinics, running clubs, art/music initiatives) to children and families who might not otherwise have access to these personal development activities.
