New Child and Adolescent Residential Treatment Center in Northbrook

Partner with us to provide a brighter future for children and adolescents who need a higher level of care for eating and other mental health disorders.
The mental health crisis among our nation’s youth is no secret. The number of children and adolescents hospitalized for suicidal thoughts or attempts has more than doubled since 2008.1 And, young people ages 15-24 with anorexia have 10 times the risk of dying compared to their same age peers.2,3  
Our new treatment center in Northbrook, Illinois, provides comprehensive child and adolescent treatment to meet this growing need and help prevent the cycle of crisis intervention at hospitals and emergency rooms.
