Child & Family Center at White Institute

20 West 74th Street, New York, NY 10023

Office: (212) 873-7070


For family members of students without mental health insurance health coverage, the Child & Family Center offers counseling and service on a sliding scale fee based on income. Their approach in working with children, adolescents, and families is based on an understanding that all human experience is fundamentally interpersonal. And their philosophy is that children are most usefully understood in the context of their relationships, their families, their schools, and their socio-cultural environments. The staff consists of highly trained child mental health professionals and the Center is directed by senior clinicians who have administered and supervised work with children for many years in private practice, clinics, schools, hospitals, and agencies. They offer the neighborhood and the surrounding community a variety of services for children and families that address a wide range of problems. These include (but are not limited to) issues such as bullying, behavior problems, school refusal, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety, eating disorders in young children, dealing with divorce, autistic spectrum and other developmental disorders, and children living with medical conditions.
