Project Achieve

Project Achieve addresses the complex challenges of families with children diagnosed with mental illness and developmental disability. Treatment includes a two-hour, after-school program for the child that focuses on counseling to develop coping skills, cognitive therapy to enhance situational awareness and behavioral management to improve interpersonal interactions. Case management services link families to the community resources specifically designed for these special-needs children.
