About Us

Mission:

Adolescent Consultation Services (ACS) supports and empowers court-involved children and families by providing mental health prevention and intervention services to help them envision and work toward a better future.

History:

ACS was founded in 1973 in response to the specialized needs of children involved in the juvenile justice system, focusing on their undiagnosed learning needs. Throughout our first two decades, ACS served teens and families who were court-involved from Cambridge and Greater Boston. The program developed expertise in diagnostic and therapeutic services and built community linkages. In 1998, ACS was awarded the contract administered by the Department of Mental Health (DMH) to provide Juvenile Court Clinic services throughout Middlesex County.

Today, ACS provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluations, treatment services, and advocacy for at-risk kids and their families. Private support enables ACS to offer Treatment and Education & Advocacy (E&A) services to children and families at no cost. We connect children and families with the resources they need to overcome obstacles due to trauma, family difficulties, educational challenges, mental health issues, and substance use concerns.
