Mission and Values

Youth Dynamics is proud to announce a vision and mission that reflects the purpose driving our work:

Our Vision

Partnering with people to build strong foundations and belonging.

Our Mission

Youth Dynamics provides family-focused behavioral health treatment founded on the principles of an actively caring and trauma-sensitive culture in which people can realize their full potential.

Our Core Values

The following values are at the heart of everything we do at Youth Dynamics:

  • Empowerment, Partnerships, Collaboration
  • Open and Respectful Communication
  • Individual and Family Strengths
  • Individual Responsibility and Self-Determination
  • Team Decision Making and Individualized Care
  • Active Care and Treatment
  • Transparency and Accountability
  • Trauma Sensitive Culture

Our Continuum of Care

At Youth Dynamics, we offer a variety of services designed to wrap kids up in care—helping them heal and find resilience in the face of mental health challenges.

Each child and family who turns to us for support is unique. Therefore, the behavioral health care we provide is tailored to their individual needs and built on a foundation of their strengths.

We provide treatment to kids struggling with a wide range of mental health conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Attachment Disorders

Many of the children and families we serve have experienced trauma. And we embrace the ARC framework (Attachment, Regulation, Competency) as our official trauma-informed care model to promote healing and guide our trauma-informed work.

We offer a continuum of mental and behavioral health care, with community service locations providing everything from mentoring to therapy, youth case management, in-home support, therapeutic foster care services, and more. And for youth needing a higher level of care, we offer therapeutic group home support via our locations in Billings, Boulder, Helena, and Great Falls.

Our Impact

We opened our doors in 1981, and in forty-plus years of service, we’ve touched the lives of over 20,000 Montana kids and families. Learn more about our impact via our most recent annual report, available in PDF format below:
