OnTrackNY is an innovative treatment program for adolescents and young adults who recently have had unusual thoughts and behaviors or who have started hearing or seeing things that others don’t. At The Child Center, we know that experiencing these symptoms can be scary. We also know that the young people who come to us with these symptoms are capable of achieving their goals for school, work, and relationships. We are committed to helping them reach their full potential and lead a healthy, fulfilling life.
OnTrackNY utilizes a “shared decision making” model. We provide comprehensive care using evidence-based practices delivered by an integrated clinical team specializing in early psychosis. Our multilingual, multicultural staff includes a psychiatric nurse practitioner, primary clinician, registered nurse, supported education and employment specialist, and a peer specialist who has experienced their own challenges and has met them with success. Together, they will help you learn new skills to cope with what you are experiencing, make informed medical decisions, reach your personal goals, and support your overall health and wellness. You and your loved ones are the most important members of this team. You will work closely with the primary clinician and other staff to identify goals that are important to you and services that can help you to accomplish these goals.
