To change the way consumers view their health and access counseling services.
To provide developmentally informed, evidence based counseling and behavioral support to children, adults, and families by providing practical interventions to improve day to day functioning. Middletown Family Wellness & Counseling aims to remove the stigma of mental health services by integrating mental health delivery into the daily conscience of consumers, deemphasizing “labels” and focusing on the maintenance and restoration of optimal functioning.
A recent study from the National Institute of Mental Health indicated that half of all children with mental illness go untreated. The Early Prevention and Screening Program is designed to address this issue by assisting parents, school professionals, and other care givers in identifying and addressing any concerns with the social, emotional, and cognitive development of infants, toddlers, children, and adolescents. The aim is to recognize both strengths and weaknesses in the child’s ecology, help identify the child’s learning style, enhance the child’s experience of success, empower parents to parent more effectively and teachers to teach more efficiently. The emphasis is placed on early detection and rule outs, beginning with an annual mental health screen. Services include individual and group counseling, behavioral assessment, psycho-educational evaluation, social skills assessment, parent education and counseling, and school consultation and support services.
