Detroit, MI (January 27, 2021) – Team Wellness Center continues to provide essential mental health services during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes behavioral health programs for Wayne County children and teens experiencing stress and anxiety.
“We are approaching one year since the start of this pandemic,” said Pamela Lamb, President & COO of Team Wellness Center. “Social isolation and concerns about the world around them are taking a toll on children and leaving them feeling vulnerable.”
School closures and social distancing during COVID-19 are needed to protect children and teens from the virus. However, they have also caused an increased anxiety and depression in young people.
Stay-at-Home orders and concerns about the spread of COVID-19 have also caused many parents to cancel or miss important healthcare appointments. For youth with mental illness, this also means that they are not getting vital medications needed to help manage their condition.
Team Wellness Center’s clinics in Detroit and Southgate offer several services for children and teens including psychiatric evaluation, therapy, psychiatry, case management, and school support. Telehealth services are also available for families who may have concerns about visiting the clinic during the pandemic.
“Children and teens respond to stress and anxiety in diverse ways and there is no one-size-fits-all approach,” added Lamb. “Parents should watch for unexplained or unexpected behavioral changes in their children and call us for help when they notice that something isn’t right.”
The Detroit children’s behavioral health center is located at 3646 Mt. Elliott, Detroit MI 48207. The Southgate clinic is located at 14799 Dix-Toledo Rd. Southgate, MI 48195.
