North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center is the pre-eminent not-for-profit children's mental health agency on Long Island. Dedicated to restoring and strengthening the emotional well-being of children and families, the Guidance Center leads the way in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, training, parent education, research and advocacy.
They help families raise healthy children and work with kids (ages 0-24) who are troubled, in trouble, or causing trouble and parents who need help in these stressful times. Difficulties include depression and anxiety, developmental delays and school failure, substance abuse and family crises stemming from illness, death, trauma, and divorce.
Their highly-qualified staff consists of teams of caring psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, drug & alcohol counselors, mental health counselors, vocational rehabilitation counselors and family advocates with expertise in treating children. North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center provides every client with a personalized treatment plan. They work with many managed care and insurance companies but no one is turned away because of inability to pay.
In addition to providing thousands of client contacts per year through our core services, the Guidance Center offers training for parents, caregivers, student interns and professionals. They also advocate in public and governmental forums for improved mental health services for children. To learn more about North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center click here.
