Treatment is available to youth ages 1-19 and their families from Lincoln and its neighboring areas who seek care for a wide range of mental, emotional, and behavioral issues. Therapists work with clients who experience varying degrees of difficulty, but often see youth who are depressed or suicidal, engaged in high risk behaviors, or have suffered physical/sexual abuse and neglect.

Treating Trauma

Acting out, destructive tendencies, self harm—these are all problematic behaviors in children and teens. The underlying cause of the behavior is painful and most often hard to face. They need to heal from the emotional hardship in order to move forward. That’s why Child Guidance Center is here.

Staff understand the importance of early intervention and treatment of emotional, physical, and/or environmental trauma. The idea is not only to correct the behavior but to help them heal from the pain, restoring hope for a better tomorrow. The agency has seen great results with this approach to treatment, with positive outcomes in more than 85 percent of youth served.  Donate today!
