The Children's Home Best Point

Individualized counseling services help children and their families maintain a healthy mindset, while also improving functioning at school and at home.

When children experience social, emotional or interpersonal difficulties, it affects their behavior and interferes with their daily lives.

Individual and family counseling services provided by Best Point Behavioral Health by the Children’s Home are designed to help children attain and maintain a healthy state of mind, while also improving the functioning of the child and the family.

These services – for children of all ages – are provided on our Madison Road campus and in home, school, and community settings.
