The Facts:
About 13 to 20 percent of children and adolescents in the United States struggle with a mental illness. That means about 1 in 5 teens ages 13-18 have or will have serious mental illness. In fact, the number of children with a psychiatric disorder is higher than the number of children with cancer, diabetes, and AIDS – combined. Half of mental illness occurs before the age of 14, and 75% by 24 years of age.

Why Choose Integrated Care Clinic for the Treatment of Your Child?
With the percentage of pediatric mental illness being so high, unfortunately there are not many psychologists or therapists that specialize in delivering treatment to this specific age group. That is how the therapists at Integrated Care Clinic differ from other providers. Some clinicians at Integrated Care Clinic have dedicated their entire education and training around the treatment of children and adolescents.

What Makes Us Different
Through education, training, and professional experience, the Integrated Care Clinic team brings the highest level of knowledge and care in order to meet the needs of your child. We are experts in incorporating all aspects of your child into treatment, including their social, biological, psychological, and neurological development. We help parents gain a deeper understand of pediatric mental illness, how it impacts their child, and how to best support their child.

Not all therapy is the same, and that is especially true for children. While some child therapy approaches mirror those for adults, child therapists need to be very flexible and creative in their delivery of care. Furthermore, different pediatric disorders often require different types of treatment. The providers at Integrated Care Clinic are able to provide high-quality, individually tailored evidenced-based care, while being able to establish rapport with your child, gain their trust, and help them to effectively learn skills and strategies to reduce their symptoms. We ensure that therapy is adjusted to your child’s age, developmental level, and mental illness. We make is so that therapy is not “a chore,” but something your child or teen is actively invested in.

While psychologists are still learning about the potential causes of mental illness in children, we do know that early intervention tends to have the best outcomes. Our goal at Integrated Care Clinic is to help you and your child learn tools for managing their mental illness, so that they do not have to become life-long patients.
