Help your child discover a healthier, happier future.
A young person’s mental health struggles can be challenging for the whole family. The Brookline Center will help you and your child find help — and hope.
Every child deserves the chance to grow up healthy, safe, supported by their families, and accepted in their community. Our compassionate, caring clinicians will help your child and your family navigate difficulties such as depression, anxiety, loss, family changes, trauma, parent-child conflict, or self-harm. Mental health conditions, social difficulties, or behavioral challenges can impact all areas of a child’s life. Our personalized care can help your child succeed at home, at school, and in the community.
The Brookline Center provides high-quality programs and services for nearly 2,000 children ages 3-18 each year. We offer assessment and treatment in individual, group, school, and family settings. With a team of nearly 100 clinicians as well as staff in all Brookline public schools, we work closely with parents, caregivers, educators, and other partners. Together, we can help your child or teen overcome challenges, build resilience, live more safely, and experience better health.
As a community-centered organization, The Brookline Center provides priority access to those who live, work, or attend school in Brookline. With some services, we are able to serve residents of neighboring communities as well.
