Therapy for the Whole Family

  • 1,413 youth were in state custody in Northwest Missouri as of May 2018.
  • Our outpatient counselors have served more than 60 of those children and families since we started programs in Maryville in 2017.

Outpatient counseling helps individuals and families address the effects of trauma, improve stress management skills and reduce or eliminate the need for psychiatric hospitalization. Through outpatient counseling, children, adults and families learn skills to process loss and prepare for the future.

Matthew's Story
