A Growing Need
In Summit County, 50% of all children with a mental illness do not get treated. Nearly 33,000 Summit County adults will suffer from a mental disorder this year, most never receiving treatment.
Child Guidance & Family Solutions (CG&FS) is one of the largest behavioral healthcare agencies serving Summit County. We provide behavioral healthcare treatment to over 4000 children and 1000 adults every year.
For over 70 years, CG&FS has been committed to supporting children, adults and families who face abuse, grief, neglect, trauma and mental health challenges. Our highly trained staff of more than 150 professionals work together to help them lead successful lives.
We work closely with the County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board (ADM Board), hospitals, doctors and school districts to provide a safety net of services for those who need it most. Our goal is to continue to serve Summit County and help end needless suffering.
A Growing Success
Today's Child Guidance & Family Solutions was once two separate agencies: Child Guidance Centers, founded in 1939 and Family Solutions, founded in 1922. Through our merger on July 1, 2003, we have been able to reach out to more people who need our help. We can now provide educational services and support to people of all ages: children and their parents, as well as other adults and the community as a whole.
