Children's Psychiatric Center Outreach


The mission of the Western New York Children's Psychiatric Center is to provide high quality, comprehensive behavioral health care services to seriously emotionally disturbed children and adolescents, and to partner with their families throughout the continuum of care. Together, we are building a trauma sensitive system of care and creating a violence free, safe and therapeutic, family centered environment. (from WNYCPC homepage)
