At Midwest Center for Youth & Families, we are proud to offer specialized residential treatment for children who struggle with complex mental illnesses. We treat conditions such as bipolar disorder, borderline features, depression, severe ADHD, suicidal and self-harming behaviors as well as the long term effects of low self-esteem in a positive, supportive therapeutic environment.
