Leading Mental Health Treatment Center for Children & Teens in Arkansas

Mental health disorders can have a disruptive effect on children and teens, but we can help. Millcreek Behavioral Health is a leading residential facility in Arkansas for kids and adolescents struggling with mental health disorders and other issues with mental health, developmental disorders, and addiction.

While once it was widely accepted that children and adolescents did not develop mental health disorders, with more accurate information, research, and parental identification, healthcare providers now understand that children and teens can – and do – develop mental health disorders. In fact, nearly 5 million children in the United States have a mental health disorder that causes significant impairment in daily life. In any given year, 20% of children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with a mental illness. While now more commonly diagnosed, making a diagnosis of a mental health disorder can be challenging for healthcare providers as children, teens, and adults all differ in the ways in which they experience the emotional, physical, and mental changes associated with mental health disorders. Some of the most common mental health disorders diagnosed in childhood include anxiety disorders, depression, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorder, autism, Asperger syndrome, ADHD, and schizophrenia. Most children and teens diagnosed with mental health disorders are able to, with the proper types of therapeutic interventions and support, learn ways to cope with their illness, adapt to the world around them, and control the symptoms of their disorders.
