Guiding Principles

  • Integrity

  • Proven Child and Family Focused Treatment

Children's Mental Health Services/REACH Inc. is a non-profit agency providing programs and services:

  • To prevent mental health issues in children

We provide a staff of experienced, trained professionals who work at our main office on Hwy 2 west of Grand Rapids, in every school in Itasca County, and in homes working with families
Most services provided by Children's Mental Health Services/REACH Inc. are covered by Medical Assistance, Private Insurance, or Itasca County. In those cases where there is no coverage, clients will be informed prior to receiving the services and will be given the opportunity to be assessed for eligibility for financial assistance. No client will be refused service because of an inability to pay.

Evidence-Based Practice

Children's Mental Health Services/REACH Inc. uses Evidence-Based Practice. This approach to therapy is based on research that has shown a high degree of effectiveness in achieving positive results for clients. It can be used in individual, group and family settings to assure the best outcomes.

Most individual and group interventions occur in the school where access by children to services and by staff to children is most convenient. Sessions are also scheduled at the office of CMHS and in the home, when family involvement is important.
