The Children’s Center opened an office in March to provide mental health services to children and their families living in North Clark County. The organization noted that this area has historically been underserved when it comes to mental health services and clients must travel into Vancouver to receive assistance with their mental health concerns. By locating to this area, they will be more accessible to families who prefer not to drive the longer distance into Vancouver.
The Children’s Center originally opened in 1989 in an office in downtown Vancouver. Currently it treats more than 800 children per month who have conditions including depression, trauma, anxiety and suicidal ideation. The Battle Ground community will benefit from the close proximity of skilled therapists who are committed to helping children.
