Painful feelings can arise when children are exposed to traumatic events at an early age. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can lead to behavioral health problems like depression and addiction later in life, if they remain untreated. Our youth programs promote hope and healing for a child or adolescent experiencing:

  • Depression or anxiety,
  • Trauma or loss,
  • Behavior difficulties,
  • Eating disorders, and/or
  • Family relationship issues.

Services offered to children by Creative Health staff are:

  • Child Centered as they meet the individual needs of the child, considers the child’s and family’s situation, are developmentally appropriate, strength based and child specific.
  • Family Focused as the family is recognized as the primary support system for the child. The family is a full partner in all stages of decision making and treatment.
  • Community Based as both formal and informal resources are accessed in order to promote the child’s successful participation in the community.
  • Multi-Systemic as they are planned in collaboration with all child-serving systems involved with the child’s life.
  • Culturally Competent as the behavior, attitudes, values, beliefs, customs, language, rituals, ceremonies and practices of the child’s ethnic group are recognized and respected.
  • Least Restrictive/Least Intrusive as they are delivered in settings considered the least restrictive and least intrusive and meet the needs of the child.
