Keeping our children happy
and healthy

As a parent, you work hard to nurture and care for your child so that he or she can live a happy and healthy life. Sometimes, despite your best efforts, your child’s occasional inattention, fear, anxiety and other emotional issues, which are a normal part of growing up, can become serious behavioral health problems. Our behavioral health specialists can help.

Novant Health offers a wide range of behavioral health services to help children, adolescents, and their families address these emotional challenges. Our team of experts can help you identify the causes of the behavioral issues and provide solutions to help your child and your family get back to enjoying life.


Below are a few examples of the behavioral health services we offer. To learn more, contact the Novant Health location nearest you.

Inpatient treatment services - Some of our locations offer a short-term, recovery-oriented inpatient treatment program for children ages 7 to 17. The program is designed to quickly identify your child's key issues and partner with your family to identify treatment strategies.  Our child/adolescent inpatient team offers a structured program that includes insight-oriented group therapy, educational groups, coping skills training, recreational therapy, and medication (when appropriate and approved by a parent or guardian). Services are provided under the supervision of experienced child and adolescent psychiatrists in a safe, child-friendly environment.

Partial hospitalization - This program offers structured care in a stable, safe environment for adolescents ages 13-17 who may be struggling with a range of mental health conditions. The average length of stay in our program is 4 to 6 weeks and is determined by each individual’s needs. Over the course of the program, your adolescent will participate in individual, group and family therapy sessions. Our psychiatrist will review medications and provide consultations on current treatment alternatives and proper dosages. The therapist provides individual and family therapy sessions. We also have an educator who can assist your adolescent with staying current with schoolwork. Our recreational therapist provides therapeutic activity groups to enhance coping skills education. We also have a nurse on staff that assists with group therapy and provides medical support. Our team is dedicated to working with you and your adolescent during this challenging time to support improvements in health and well-being. The partial hospitalization program is offered Monday-Friday from 8:00AM-2:30PM.
