Child Outpatient Services

What is Child Outpatient Therapy?

Child Outpatient Therapy is treatment for youth ages 5-18 that helps reduce or eliminate emotional or behavioral difficulties impacting youth and their families. NSMHA treatment focuses on both individual and family, with sessions conducted in the clinic. Parents or guardians are involved over the course of treatment to support their child’s progress. Outpatient therapy is best suited to individuals and families that may benefit from weekly or bi-weekly appointments in an office setting and who are not in acute crisis.

NSCS is now offering Urgent Care walk-in services for adults and children at our East Boston Counseling Center at 14 Porter St. Urgent Care is a walk-in screening to complete paperwork & discuss available services with a triage clinician. It takes approximately 30 minutes. Clients may or may not have an intake assessment the same day. (With same-day intake, it can be up to 3 hours total.)
