Plateau Pediatrics and Mental Health Cooperative Partner to Provide Child/Family Counseling

CROSSVILLE, TN – School is out for the summer and parents are already getting a jump start on next semester by enrolling their students for mental health services. Plateau Pediatrics has partnered with Mental Health Cooperative (MHC) to help children and families adjusting to new routines, summer schedules, or struggling with attention deficit disorders.

“We’re seeing a lot of parents coming in who are concerned that their kiddos didn’t have a great school year. So they’re coming in to get a jump start on making improvements before the new school year starts back up,” says Natalie Whorton, MHC therapist.

Mental Health Cooperative (MHC), a nonprofit behavioral health provider renowned for its evidence-based, team approach to helping children and families.

With a licensed therapist on site Tuesdays and Thursdays, MHC is working with Plateau Pediatrics to focus on the counseling needs of existing patients.

Plateau Pediatrics provides medical services to children in either its wellness or illness building, which helps prevent well children from coming into contact with ill children.
