Children's Mental Health Services

Incorporating play and talk therapy, EPIC’s Children’s Groups are for children ages 5-7 and 8-12.  They are based on the fact that a child’s natural method of communication and expression is play.  In group, children can ‘play out or role play’ their experiences and feelings in a safe environment and use therapeutic toys and games to say what they can’t say with words. 

Children’s Groups are beneficial to children in that they:

  • Provide a way for children to work through defenses and handle anxiety
  • Help children verbalize feelings
  • Help children act out unconscious material and relieve tension
  • Help children release feelings in a safe environment

In these groups, children can learn self-control, to respect themselves & others, to be responsible for self, to be creative in problem solving, self acceptance and
self-direction, and to make responsible choices.

A Caregivers Support Group is available to parents/guardians of children in EPIC’s programs.

EPIC is committed to a person-centered approach that places our clients, including children, at the center of their own care resulting in a positive difference in health outcomes and client satisfaction.

Accommodations are available for persons who are disabled or deaf/hearing-impaired. For assistance, call 904-829-2273, x7016.
