Programs for Youth

Rosecrance programs for children and youth begin with a screening process where we evaluate each child’s needs and provide a diagnosis and recommendation for outpatient behavioral health services that help create lasting, healthy routines. Parents and guardians play important, active roles in children’s treatment and recovery. Programs also reach youth in the community through prevention education and crisis response.

Treatment specifically for youth

Behavioral health programs for youth provide care primarily for mental health disorders and co-occurring substance use disorders. Outpatient services include individual, group, and family therapy; psychiatric services and medication management; partial hospitalization programs (PHP); and community-based services in schools and courts. Common diagnoses that we see with youth include depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, and other mood, disruptive, and conduct disorders. Additional challenges include low self-esteem, school refusal, and gender expression.

Youth care that fits your needs

Rosecrance youth services are offered on-site at many of our locations, as well as in the community at schools, nonprofit providers, and youth court and juvenile justice systems, as well as through crisis response teams.


Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) in McHenry County, Illinois, serves children ages 8 to 12. We are committed to helping youth with acute mental health concerns achieve stability and increase daily functioning.


Virtual screenings and appointments are available for those who prefer or need those options.
