Programs and Services
Mount Saint Vincent’s clinical treatment programs provide individualized care to children who have experienced trauma. Our highly trained staff works with children facing severe behavioral or emotional challenges due to:
- A diagnosis of mental illness
- Witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event
- Emotional, physical or sexual abuse
- Chronic neglect
As a result of trauma, children may become aggressive or depressed, develop oppositional defiant or reactive attachment disorders, or adopt other debilitating behaviors.
Through a thorough clinical evaluation, the application of appropriate therapies, and close coordination with the child’s caregivers, we help children improve their functioning and unlock their potential for success.
Our child behavior treatment programs provide the high level of structure and predictability necessary to help children feel safe and secure. All our programs are fully accredited by COA, the Council on Accreditation. Our individualized, developmentally sensitive behavioral therapies meet the child where he or she is emotionally, cognitively, socially and academically. We are proud to serve as one of the nation’s leading providers of trauma services for children.
Our comprehensive, end-to-end wraparound services ensure your child’s successful transition back into the home. Learn more about the many programs we offer to help your child overcome challenges and thrive.
In-home behavior therapists and behavior coaches offer both individual and family therapy in the home. He or she works to globalize the child’s success at Mount Saint Vincent to the home environment, strengthen communication and positive connection among family members, and provide developmentally appropriate parenting interventions.
Mount Saint Vincent is excited to announce that we are starting an outpatient program, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). This program is an evidence-based training of behavioral intervention for children and their parents/foster parents/caregivers that focuses on decreasing challenging child behavior problems, increasing child social skills and cooperation, and improving the parent-child attachment relationship.
We have a preschool for neighborhood children ages 3 to 5. The program holds a four-star rating from Colorado Shines, the highest rating awarded.
The on-campus Sister Daniel Stefani School provides academic instruction and educationally related mental health services for children enrolled in day treatment and residential treatment. Our highly trained multidisciplinary team uses NMT principles to facilitate a school program that is highly structured, safe, and supportive of the children’s individual needs.
We provide home-like residential treatment in our three cottages for 36 girls and boys ages 5 to 12. This treatment option is for children so severely impacted by trauma, mental illness, neglect or abuse that 24/7 care is required.
Foster families provide children a stable, safe, and nurturing environment until they can return to their biological families. Mount Saint Vincent’s Foster Care Program serves children ages newborn to 18 years old.
