Child and Family Services
Riverside’s Child and Family Services are dedicated to helping families succeed. We offer a range of programs that serve children and families at all levels of development – including before birth. Our goal is to keep the family at the center of care and focused on their child. With decades of experience, our services easily integrate into a child’s existing support system; building a team around the family’s vision for their child’s future and incorporating the needed supports into the child’s daily life.
Our Child and Family services are easy to access whether you need help with an infant, an older child, or a teenager.
Outpatient Therapy for Children and Families is available at seven locations for young people who are struggling with their mental health or behavioral issues. Our Outpatient Centers offer comprehensive mental health services in comfortable and professional settings.
School, Day, and After School Programs are highly specialized programs for youth who are experiencing behavioral issues or have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness. These are supportive and therapeutic programs designed to help students cope and better integrate into their school and home communities.
