Child and adolescent programs at Wyoming Behavioral Institute are offered for young patients who struggle with behavioral issues or a mental health disorder. Comprised of various group therapies, social activities, educational services and peer support, these programs are intended to promote positive thinking and healthy conflict resolution.
Our young patients receive educational services from state-certified teaching staff while in our care. We strongly encourage outpatient services after discharge to promote long-term progress and mental wellness.
For more information on youth behavioral health services, please read our letter to parents and guardians.
“Our foster son made amazing progress in the 16 days he was there. He is using the coping skills he learned and has finally settled into his meds. He is excelling in school and his extracurricular activities and everyone from our family friends to his counselor and occupational therapist is amazed at the progress and the changes we have seen in him. Without having the 24-hour “eyes on” attention that WBI provided, I think we would have been still caught in the cycle of telling the psychiatrist about behaviors and playing with his medications hoping something stuck. Which wasn’t fun with a 5 year old. Being able to have him watched, monitored and appropriately diagnosed is allowing him the opportunity to succeed far beyond any of our expectations.”
