Behavorial Health Care
NURTURING THE MENTAL WELL BEING OF YOUR CHILD
At COPA we take a holistic, integrated approach to both physical and mental health. We work with children and teenagers to monitor and track all areas of psychological and behavioral development.
If you have any concerns about your child’s gross and fine motor skills, discomfort in social situations or ability to maintain focused attention, we can help.
You don’t have to face your concerns alone.
We’ll examine your child, offer our observations and, if necessary, refer you to a Behavioral Health Care Specialist right here at COPA who can help to assess your child’s development and offer options. It’s a comprehensive, team approach that you won’t find anywhere else.
MENTAL CRISIS – If you believe your child is in a mental or behavioral crisis, call the Deschutes County crisis hotline, (800) 875-7364, available 24 hours a day. If your child is having suicidal thoughts or showing acute mental behaviors, call 9-1-1 for help.
