Kempsville Center for Behavioral Health provides comprehensive behavioral health services for children and teens struggling with behavioral health issues such as depression, extreme anxiety and suicidal/homicidal ideations. We work diligently to provide excellent service and compassionate care to our patients using evidence-based treatment programs.
The center is fully accredited by The Joint Commission for demonstrating compliance to the standards that govern quality healthcare. We are licensed by The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and the Virginia Association of Independent Specialized Education Facilities. These accreditations and licenses have stringent conditions and quality of care standards. This allows us to provide the best care.
The strength of Kempsville Center for Behavioral Health lies in the expertise of the team. The team includes a psychiatrist, a therapist, nurses, mental health technicians, teachers and paraprofessionals – all creating a structured and caring environment for your child to thrive in.
We understand that, as parents, you can’t give 24/7 support to your child – but we can. Our staff are there at any point in the day to help your child work through issues and reach success. Kempsville Center for Behavioral Health offers a wide range of pediatric and adolescent mental and behavioral health services.
Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a day program that helps children and adolescents, ages 8 to 18 better manage school anxiety, difficult emotions, problematic behavior and mental health challenges. It is a convenient treatment option for children and adolescents whose illnesses can be managed without inpatient care.
We understand that each person is unique in their struggles, which is why we provide a personalized approach to treatment. The center provides individual treatment, medication management and education/skill building/clinical therapy and other allied group therapy through a cognitive behavioral therapy approach.
