Child and Family Outpatient Services
Child and Family Outpatient Services provide individual, family, couples, group, and play therapy. We serve children, adolescents, families, parents, grandparents, and caregivers. Services are provided at our 1138 Pine Street site, in many Chittenden County schools, and at the Milton Family and Community Center. The outpatient team offers a comprehensive array of general mental health and specialty services.
Two specific programs which serve children with special emotional needs are Fire Wise Kids of Vermont and STAR Groups. Fire Wise Kids of Vermont offers specialty services for children and youth who misuse fire. STAR Groups (Sexual Trauma and Recovery) are specialty services for children ages 5-12 years and their caregivers. These children must be identified as sexually reactive, meaning they may have been sexually abused or exposed to sexually explicit information.
