Lighthouse provides services tailored to meet the specific needs of families and individuals. This includes individual, group, and family therapy with appropriate referrals for diagnostic assessments through the Lighthouse Integrated Access team.
A diagnostic assessment is a written evaluation conducted by a mental health professional to determine whether a child or youth has a mental health disorder.
Families often seek assistance because of concerns they have about children’s behaviors, moods or other symptoms. Sometimes others involved with children may observe signs of possible mental health needs and recommend that parents pursue a diagnostic assessment (a written evaluation conducted by a mental health professional to determine whether a child or youth has a mental health disorder). Other times, mental health or developmental screenings may identify early potential mental health problems. This usually results in a referral to a mental health professional for further evaluation.
Following a diagnostic assessment and/or other screenings, individuals are referred to Outpatient Services if needed.
