Mission: The purpose of Beech Brook is to advance the emotional well-being and self sufficiency of children, youth and families by providing effective, innovative behavioral health, permanency and educational and related services and by serving as a strong voice for children, youth and families.
Programs: School-based mental health programsbeech brook provides mental health support and services to children in elementary schools throughout the cleveland municipal school district and in several suburban districts. Working hand-in-hand with children, teachers, administrators, and families, beech brook helps children overcome the mental health problems that are getting in the way of their success. This program offers both individual and family counseling, support groups, medication somatic services, parent support and education, and linkage with community resources.
residential treatment for latency-age children and youthbeech brook's open residential treatment program provides a 24-hour, highly structured therapeutic milieu where children learn to manage their behavior, control anger, solve problems, follow directions and build healthy relationships with others. During their stay, which may range from a few weeks to a few months, children and youth attend the campus-based gund school and participate in a partial hospitalization program after school and on weekends. In the past year, those services have been expanded to serve youth with mental health issues who have been involved in the juvenile justice system.
therapeutic foster carebeech brook's therapeutic foster care is a community-based, mental health foster care program built upon the teaching family model, a strength-based, skills-building treatment model. Therapeutic foster care admits children/teens who have recently stepped down from or who are at risk of stepping into a higher level of care, e. G. , residential treatment or hospitalization. Frequently these children have a history of major problems in their physical health, school adjustment, peer and adult relationships, and emotional stability. Beech brook also provides specialized and traditional foster care for children and teens whose mental health needs are less severe.
