A crisis can happen at a moment’s notice and can penetrate the fabric of even the strongest families. Whether it’s learning to cove with a divorce, mental illness, a critical illness or the loss of a loved one, the circumstances surrounding a life-altering situation are often as unique as the needs of those affected. Family Centers’ comprehensive network of counseling, support and trauma response services is instrumental in helping families in crisis work toward a successful resolution.
Center for HOPE
The Center for HOPE provides comprehensive services for adults and children living with an illness, grieving a loss or coping with a trauma. All counseling, support and education services are facilitated by specially-trained professionals in an atmosphere of hope and renewal.
Counseling and Mental Health Services
Family Centers’ counseling and mental health services help individuals, groups, couples and families resolve a wide range of personal and relationship issues. Alcohol and substance abuse services are also offered. All services are facilitated by trained mental health professionals and provided in our licensed and accredited centers located in Greenwich, Stamford and Darien.
The Den for Grieving Kids
The Den for Grieving Kids offers children, teens and families a safe, caring place that allows them to explore their feelings about the loss of a loved one and begin the journey toward healing.
