Behavioral Health Services

MSPCC helps families dealing with challenging emotional and behavioral problems, such as depression, anxiety, behavioral problems in the home or at school and problems associated with experiences of trauma, abuse or neglect. MSPCC is a licensed provider of individual, group and family counseling with specific training and experience in helping victims of trauma, including unique support services for military families.

In addition to outpatient services offered in our six regional offices, we also provide services in families' homes, in schools and other community settings, where families are most comfortable. An overview of our services is below. Or click here to find all services available in your area.
