Like all of us, children and teens in the United States have faced many emotional challenges during the pandemic. Finding mental health solutions that effectively address the complexity of maintaining positive well-being in children and teens is hard for parents, even in the best of times. The mental health services we offer at Beyond Healthcare help Toledo children and teens get the psychological care they need.
We can help. Beyond Healthcare is a new community-focused mental health services provider that understands the needs and struggles of young people. We provide support systems and comprehensive treatment in a non-threatening and inclusive environment.
A Holistic Approach to Children’s Mental Health
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is one of the evidence-based treatment tools we use to build the skills and self-awareness that our children, or learners, will need, especially for dealing with painful emotions and difficult situations. Our professionals guide learners through treatment and support that gives them:
- Mindfulness — Your children will learn to use this active skill to remain grounded and engaged in the present moment, which lets them break the cycle of dwelling on bad experiences.
- Emotional Regulation — This is central to effective DBT treatment. Understanding your own emotions is one of the hardest parts of therapy. We work to foster a keen emotional awareness in our learners, which gives them the power to use emotional regulation much more effectively.
- Distress Tolerance — In the same way children learn to regulate their emotions during mental health therapy appointments, they can also be armed with skills that will protect them in difficult real-life situations.
- Interpersonal Effectiveness — Positive communication skills are critical to children and teens who want to thrive in their lives. We want our learners to feel like they are a part of a community and know that building healthy relationships will always help them.
These skills form the core of dialectical behavior therapy, but we can also give children and teens unique experiences at our Toledo behavioral health center. We believe in fostering a connected community, which means our learners benefit from solid relationships with alumni, other families in our programs, and professionals from many fields.
Will Dialectical Behavior Therapy Help My Child?
Many children who have chronic emotional regulation issues will undoubtedly benefit from dialectical behavior therapy, as well as those who are struggling with difficult or scary situations.

When considering psychological or psychiatric care in Toledo, it will be beneficial to find a practice near your home; however, you may need to venture a little further if you find a therapist who turns out to be a better fit for your family. Call us at 833.698.0453, and we will begin your journey to a holistic solution that is convenient for you and your family. We want to create an excellent care plan that is individualized for each of our learners.
Beyond Healthcare Accepts Medicaid
To accommodate our children, teens, and families in need, Beyond Healthcare allows patients to pay for therapy using Medicaid. After scheduling an initial appointment, we will set up a mental health assessment interview between your child and one of our mental health professionals. This will give us a better understanding of their thinking, problem-solving, and coping skills.
Don’t feel like you and those you love are alone. You need to feel connected for the best mental health outcomes. Therapy alone isn’t enough for families with children dealing with mood disorders or any other mental health challenge in our complex world.
