For Parents

At Shadow Mountain Behavioral Health System, we believe that an integral part of a child’s healing is family involvement during treatment and aftercare. Use these resources to learn more about how you can help your child in recovery.

Will Treatment Work?

We can help.

Families who come to Shadow Mountain have usually tried many things before calling us and are often discouraged.

Behavioral health, like other types of health care, has detailed assessments and evidence-based treatments for diagnoses.  We regularly work with children who are:

  • Acting out by doing things that are harmful to themselves or others
  • Recovering from trauma
  • Changing sleeping and eating patterns
  • Showing signs of emotional instability such as depression or anxiety
  • Coping with autistic behaviors
  • Displaying developmental delays such as trouble in school or poor social skills
  • Seeing and hearing things or being out of touch with reality
  • Not managing feelings safely

How does Shadow Mountain Behavioral Health System Help?

We help children:

  • Manage their feelings safely
  • Learn appropriate ways to express anger and hostility
  • Overcome desires to self-harm
  • Relieve stress
  • Identify and build on their strengths
  • Experience successes in their family, academic and social lives
