Children’s Crisis Services

When a child or teen struggles with emotional or behavioral issues, the whole family can feel out-of-sorts and chaotic. Symptoms of emotional and behavioral illness are as individual as we are. At Gracepoint Children’s Crisis Services, children aged 5 to 17, will be evaluated by a licensed therapist and a child psychiatrist. These professionals may recommend an inpatient stay of 48 to 72 hours to stabilize symptoms. Call us 24/7.

We also assess children who arrive from schools, emergency departments and through emergency services under the Florida Baker Act.

ChildrenTreatment activities

  • During individual therapy children meet with a therapist to set personal goals and resolve personal issues.
  • Group therapy sessions are intensive discussions about good decision-making, feelings, relationships and communications skills. Children under 13 spend more time in individual therapy rather than group.
  • Coping groups deal with anger management, clarifying values, family conflict, bullying and more.
  • Activity therapy and school offers structured recreation and expressive arts which help children learn effective ways of using leisure to channel stress and interact with others.
  • Before going home, family therapy explores challenges children may experience at home. Families and children agree to after care and referral plans assisted by a case manager. They learn together that the children are not responsible for all the needed changes.
