Newport Mental Health

For Children and Teens


Outpatient Therapy

Our program provides wraparound services for any child, ages 4 to 18, who is experiencing mental health challenges, substance use disorder, or any co-occurring disorders. Trauma-informed child and adolescent therapists provide an array of evidence-based therapies and services including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). 

Children, teens, and families are welcomed at our main location at 127 Johnny Cake Hill Road, Middletown, RI, and our dedicated children’s center and waiting room located at 42 Valley Road, Middletown, RI.

Healthy Transitions/Youth and Young Adult Center

Healthy Transitions is an early intervention program for youth/young adults ages 16 to 25. This is a team-based practice that provides developmentally appropriate services and supports for those at risk of having, or who are currently experiencing, a first experience with a serious adult mental illness, and who may also have a co-occurring substance use disorder.

Quick Facts

Additional Support and Services

Clients in our programs receive additional support, care, and services as needed.

Zero Suicide

Our healthcare providers are specially trained in administering an evidence-based screening tool, the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale, at each contact with those we serve. Newport Mental Health providers initiate a Pathway to Safety for those individuals identified as at-risk, who are then given specialized suicide prevention treatment services and are closely monitored until their risk subsides. Ongoing follow-up is provided to reduce the reoccurrence of suicide risk.

Housing Stabilization

A Medicaid-funded housing support service allows us to provide at-risk clients housing stabilization to prevent the loss of existing housing or to provide help finding affordable housing in the community. We coordinate with housing support staff at the Newport Housing Authority, McKinney Shelter/50 Washington Square Apartments, and senior housing developments in Newport County.


Appointments with a clinician or prescriber can be arranged via telehealth. Private telehealth consultation rooms are available in our offices for those clients who do not have internet access or a computer.
