The developmental years present opportunities for intervention that can alter the course of a person’s life.
At the Marcus Youth and Family Center at Arundel Lodge, younger children have the opportunity to express themselves and establish a safe, trusting relationship with our therapists in the Play Therapy Room.
Adolescents and teens can meet with therapists one-to-one or benefit from Group Therapy, experiencing guidance, healing, and positive peer support in a comfortable, welcoming space designed just for them. Group Therapy for adolescents and teens can be highly effective in reducing the incidence of depression, anxiety and conduct disorders.

Maryland Healthy Transitions (MD-HT) is a program designed to serve transition-age youth (TAY) ages 16-25. TAY are at an especially high risk for emotional and behavioral disorders; nearly one in four young adults has a current mental illness. However, most TAY with mental and behavioral health issues do not receive treatment. The goals of MD-HT are to:
Assisting young adults with their educational goals including finishing high school, enrolling into college, etc.
Providing support to find and maintain employment.
Support with everyday living goals and maintaining home life.
Assist families with understanding their child’s mental illness through evidence based practices.
