Programs & Services

Children’s Services

The decision to hospitalize a child must be made very carefully and only after less restrictive alternatives are deemed to be inappropriate. The first concern of Parkwood Behavioral Health System’s Child Program is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for a child’s special needs.

We are here to help:

The following are signs which may indicate that an adolescent behavioral health evaluation can be useful:

  • Marked fall in school performance
  • Poor grades in school despite trying very hard
  • Severe worry or anxiety, as shown by regular refusal to go to school, go to sleep or take part in activities that are normal for the child’s age
  • Frequent physical complaints
  • Hyperactivity; fidgeting; constant movement beyond regular playing with or without difficulty paying attention
  • Persistent nightmares
  • Persistent disobedience or aggression (longer than 6 months) and provocative opposition to authority figures
  • Frequent, unexplainable temper tantrums
  • Threatens to harm or kill oneself

The Child Program is designed for children, ages 4 – 11, and the following services are provided:
