Diagnostic Evaluations and Assessments
Fraser Mental Health diagnostic evaluations and assessments are tailored to meet the individual needs of the child and family. They may consist of interviews, standardized testing, and/or observations, as well as review of any previous assessments. Clinicians will determine the diagnosis that best defines the child’s concerns, identify treatment or service needs, and make recommendations to the family and other service providers as needed.
Assessment staff include licensed psychologists, social workers, professional counselors and marriage and family therapists. Consultation is available from experts in a wide range of children’s mental health issues.

Permanency & Adoptive Family Support
Permanency & Adoptive Family Support — We bring an adoption-centered therapeutic perspective to our work with children, adolescents and their caregivers as they navigate a variety of challenges. The families we work with are concerned with the impact of trauma, attachment development, open adoption relationships, grief and loss, transracial family identity, or managing challenging behaviors. Because we believe in strengthening connections with key figures in a child’s life, we support foster parents, birth/first parents, adoptive parents, kinship caregivers, siblings or other key family members to support the child.
