The Center for Behavioral Health focuses on stabilizing at-risk children and pre-adolescents who have experienced traumatic stress and dysfunction due to family violence, sexual assault, emotional or physical abuse, chronic neglect, traumatic loss, or school and community violence. 
Clinicians work with clients individually and in a family context to help them identify their own strengths; understand choices available to them; and assist in discovering inner resources that will help them to understand and cope with the traumatic feelings they experience.  The Center counsels parents how to restore children and families to optimal functioning at home, at school, or at work; to reduce risk of hospitalization or out-of-family placement for children; and to help parents support children who are trauma survivors, coping with learning disabilities, or attention deficit disorder. The Center also offers psycho-pharmacology services, and Family Service clinicians provide mental health services to children and pre-adolescents enrolled in the Boston Public Schools. Finally, our clinicians are available to help clients with alcohol or drug issues through assessment, referrals and treatment, including counseling and medication, as indicated.

FSGB seeks to promote the self-sufficiency and well-being of at-risk families, children and youth through innovative, culturally competent, and integrated health and social services, thereby contributing to healthy communities. FSGB principally serves low-income minority residents of Boston''s urban communities--Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, Jamaica Plain and South End--struggling with the emotional, psychological, physical and economic effects of poverty, abuse, violence and parental neglect. These are central city neighborhoods where the need is greatest for our intensive crisis intervention, trauma services, risk prevention, peer and family education; social-emotional competency and parenting skill-building; youth leadership development programs; and behavioral health care services.
