Youth Served by Orchard Place

Each year, the experienced and compassionate staff at Orchard Place works with around 8,000 children and adolescents of all ages from all over Iowa who need individual help and support. Our goal is to help develop strong futures for children suffering from mental illnesses, behavioral health challenges, substance abuse issues, severe trauma and more.

Our programs strive to focus on more than just day-to-day lives, and to help youth develop strong futures by breaking the cycle of letting mental illness and trauma stifle their ability to succeed.

Mental Illnesses and Behavioral Health Issues

Orchard Place Campus seeks to meet all of our young clients' needs with individualized treatment and services through a multidisciplinary approach to psychological care. This collaborative effort helps children with serious psychological illness reclaim their lives and works with families to help reintegrate these youth into their home communities.

Living with or caring for a child who suffers from a mental illness or has emotional and behavioral challenges can sometimes feel overwhelming.
