A Guiding Star to Navigate Autism, Mental Health and Special Needs at Every Stage of Life

Mental Health Day Treatment

Many people do not realize that children can struggle with their mental health. They sometimes face difficult issues like trauma or disrupted relationships. Children may feel anxious, throw tantrums, have trouble with boundaries, display aggressive behavior or act irritable.

Parents who try to manage this behavior alone can become overwhelmed. Your child may need more care than you can provide. Fraser can help.

Early intervention is important. Giving children the right tools helps guide them toward future success.

Providing Support and Guidance

Fraser Mental Health Day Treatment is for children ages 2 ½ to 6 years old. The program is three hours a day, five days a week and supports children’s development of age-appropriate social, emotional and behavioral functioning.

Children work with therapists to develop adaptive coping, problem-solving and social skills. We use play therapy to regulate emotions and better control behavior.

Families have strong involvement and receive support and guidance so they learn how to work with children at home. Fraser is committed to care coordination, so we work hard to collaborate with schools, daycares and other healthcare providers. We do everything we can to support these skills and your child’s development.

Case Management is available to those who qualify and can help families access and coordinate any other services.

School-Based Mental Health Day Treatment

Like our clinic-based services, School-Based Mental Health Day Treatment is for children ages 2 ½ to 6 years old. This program lasts for three hours a day, five days a week. Children receive services in their schools. This cuts down on the stress and expense of traveling between appointments. It also allows children to receive care in a familiar environment. Care coordination is emphasized. Our therapists collaborate with teachers and other school employees to help ensure your child receives the best care possible.
