ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) Program-West Center for Children & Youth
Who We Are…
West Bergen Mental Healthcare, recognizing the growing and unmet need for counseling and psychiatric services specifically for children, established the Center for Children and Youth in 1990. This high quality mental health center offers parents and children meaningful and effective services as they face a changing and challenging society.
When families experience a full range of needs and problems, they turn to the Center for help in managing behavioral issues, developmental concerns, family conflict, school difficulties and serious psychological problems such as major depression and severe anxiety. We provide research-based programs designated to address these needs.
The Center for Children and Youth has served more than 6,000 children, adolescents and their families.
West Bergen is committed to meeting the psychological need of our clients with sensitivity and responsive, innovative services at the highest possible standard. We strive to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve…one life at a time.
Our specialized program for children and adolescents with ADHD addresses problems in school functioning, social skills and family relationships. These children often have difficulty establishing and maintaining friendships are frustrated in school and lack a positive view of self.
