Each member of our team plays a key role in the services we provide. From the administrative and professional staff to the finance, IT, and office personnel, they are at the core of everything we do.

We're Here To Help

Preferred Behavioral Health Group provides multiple youth and adult services to address emotional, mental, and behavioral health issues. However, some situations require different services. If your child is experiencing life-threatening danger or the immediate risk of harming themselves, you must take them to the nearest emergency room or dial 911 for immediate assistance.
