These are some of the most common questions we are asked. If you have a question about our services please contact us.

Behavioral services for children are very different than services for adults. Here are some guidelines to help you understand what to expect — we know it can be a difficult and emotional process to seek help, so please let us know what we can do!

  1. A teacher, medical provider, or other professional may refer you to Youth Dynamics for assistance. Or you can contact us directly for help! Please call 1-877-458-7022 or visit our locations page to connect with an office near you.
  2. You will talk to your local area manager who will get to know you and your family and will walk you through filling out an intake packet. At this time, you’ll learn more about the services we offer. All of our services are covered by Healthy Montana Kids (formerly CHIP) and HMK Plus (formerly called Children’s Medicaid). We accept many types of commercial insurance and offer sliding fee scale for uninsured. For more information, please see financial assistance.
  3. Next, a therapist will meet with your child and family (as appropriate) to do an “assessment.” This will take about an hour and is what the therapist uses to make recommendations for the services most appropriate for your child at this time.
  4. After the assessment, your specialized, highly-trained team of Youth dynamics professions will begin working with your child and family.

Behavioral health services include mental and emotional health treatment. Our approach is to work with children on specific behavioral problems, while also addressing emotional issues, ways of thinking, and decision making. We also offer specialized services, such as substance abuse treatment and independent living skills.
