Programs and Services That Strengthen Family Bonds
Many times the symptoms of behavioral health aren’t so obvious. Often they can be very subtle, such as difficulty getting up to go to school, sleeping a lot, excessive energy, or even crying, which is very common with younger children.
Often as parents, the feeling of helplessness can be frightening, but you are not alone. Reach Family Services, Inc. (Alcanza Servicios de Familia) has a variety of programs that can be tailored to meet your child and family's needs.
At Reach Family Services, Inc. (Alcanza Servicios de Familia), we can help you with these issues. We work directly with children to find coping mechanisms and help children manage their symptoms. In addition, we work with the family to help the child and family dynamic.
