Behavioral Health & Trauma/Crisis Response
WHO WE SERVE
At Arizona’s Children Association (AzCA), we primarily serve the behavioral health needs of children from birth up to their 22nd birthday. Services for adults are provided as part of some of our specialty programs.
We provide resources and supports that are specific to your child, no matter their age. In particular, we recognize and provide extra support for the needs specific to children who are ages 0-5, and those adolescents and young adults considered Transition Age Youth, ages 14-21.
AzCA is an AHCCCS insurance contracted provider for behavioral health needs. In addition, AzCA accepts self-pay for many of our services. We also receive specific funding to offer our specialty programs, regardless of insurance. We encourage you to connect with our intake department to assist you with any questions you may have for this.
WHAT WE DO
At AzCA, we believe all services and support should be delivered in a trauma-informed, culturally and linguistically responsive manner. This Trauma Informed Care approach recognizes that we must understand the whole of the person who is seeking services. All staff are trained in Trauma Informed Care, and this approach is at the core of our daily practice.
Our services are provided in the environment that you request in order to best meet the needs of your family whether that is in-home, in the community, in school, at one of our local offices, or via telehealth.

- – Children’s Program – through a combination of individual, family and group therapy, we help children establish health boundaries and learn critical coping skills
