OUR MISSION is to help children with mental and
behavioral health needs achieve emotional stability,
academic success, and happy and productive lives.
We are the largest provider of child mental health care in Mid-
Fairfield County. Each year we help thousands of children and
families who live in Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, Westport,
Weston, and Wilton.
Most of the children we work with come from very low or
low/moderate income level families. For a majority of these children,we are often-times their only option because their families simply cannot afford private treatment. At the Child Guidance Center, no child or family is ever turned away because of their inability to pay.
Our fees are always based on what a family can afford.
We utilize a family centered approach designed to meet the needs of each individual child. We are comprised of seven unique evidence-based programs and provide comprehensive care in a safe friendly environment.
