Summer Day Treatment Program

The Summer Day Treatment Program at Belmont Pines Hospital provides mental health treatment for children and teens ages 5 to 18 in need of support and structure. Professionals who specialize in trauma-informed care treat patients in separate age groups.

This group takes place throughout the Summer so that your loved one can get the help they need without hurting their academics.

Who should choose outpatient treatment?

Outpatient treatment for child and adolescent behavioral health is designed to meet a wide-variety of mental health care needs.

Not only are outpatient mental health services ideal for those stepping down from “higher” levels of treatment options such as residential or acute care, but they are also a great reintroduction to treatment if your mental health problems are getting worse or for those seeking treatment for the first time.

The outpatient level of care is more flexible than inpatient care, with fewer hours and days in each program, while also providing treatment plans designed to meet your needs. We provide patients with professional mental health counselors and therapists, the ability to return home the day of treatment to spend time with their family and an opportunity to practice what they learned in the real world.

If your child or teen needs help from an outpatient program, please call our treatment facility’s admissions team at 330-759-2700 to answer your questions and get started.

Medication Management

Belmont Pines Hospital offers day treatment, partial hospitalization and medication management to help children meet their behavioral health goals. Our services are staffed with psychiatrists, licensed therapists and clinical counselors. Extended hours can help families maintain appointments and can enhance the success of treatment. Medication Management Psychiatrists and Certified Nurse Practitioners offer evaluations and medication management. New clients who need an evaluation can be referred by their doctor’s office or therapist or they may call independently to schedule an appointment.

When should my child or teen get help?

Child and adolescent mental health treatment is not one-size-fits-all, but many of the signs and symptoms of adolescent and children’s mental health issues are the same and identifiable.

Some signs and symptoms of mental health issues in children and adolescents include:

  • Social withdrawal
  • Frequent or excessive worrying
  • Lack of interest in activities that they previously enjoyed
  • Changes in personality
  • Academic issues
  • Acting out
  • Suicidal thoughts

Some common types of mental health conditions in teens and children may include:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Personality disorders

Why should I choose outpatient treatment for my child or teen?

Don’t wait to get your loved one the outpatient behavioral health services they need — the research shows that every day counts.

Studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that getting your loved one help from mental health professionals and evidence-based treatment services early can make a positive impact on the rest of their lives.

Pair that with research from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) that shows that nearly 50% of people with mental health issues began showing signs before the age of 14 and nearly 75% of people by the age of 24, and the need for early identification and early treatment of children and adolescent mental health issues becomes clear.

Choosing a mental health program for children and teens can be a tough, difficult decision, but it is the right decision for their future.
