The Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance Clinic is a private non-profit, outpatient mental health center for children and families. Since 1946, the Clinic has provided individual, family, and group counseling services for children, adolescents, and families who reside in Kern County, California.

The Clinic serves families with a wide range of issues. Typically, children and adolescents are referred to the Clinic because of difficulties that interfere with their functioning at home, in school or in the community. Problems may be related to control, attention, mood, anger management, etc. The Clinic also serves children and adolescents who have experienced various forms of abuse, neglect or other hardships that affect their daily lives.

Children and families seen at the Clinic receive an initial assessment at which time an individualized treatment plan is developed by the parent(s) and therapist. Treatment may include parent education groups and/or individual, family or group counseling. A psychiatrist is available to provide medication support services, as needed. All of these services are provided in a bilingual, culturally appropriate environment.

The Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance Clinic provides a variety of services to empower parents with the tools and techniques to guide their children through emotional and behavioral difficulties that may arise. Our outpatient program serves children up to age 21 who exhibit emotional, behavioral, or substance abuse related problems. Services included individual, family, and group therapy as well as psychiatric evaluations, medication support, and crisis stabilization, if needed. Our mental health professionals provide counseling and case management services to children and families in their homes, on school campuses, and at other designated community locations. The Clinic offers a variety of programs to help families in need of additional assistance.
