Beau Necco, founder and CEO of Necco, realized that each person’s mental and emotional health is just as important as their physical health. However, Beau Necco also realized that the mental and emotional health of a foster child can be overlooked if the proper services are not provided. As a result, Beau Necco ensured that foster children involved with Necco in Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia would have access to services they need. Necco offers a wide variety of therapeutic services to ensure that foster children are provided with the necessary assistance to be mentally and emotionally healthy. One of these services includes counseling.
Beau Necco Strives to Create Systems and Processes that Ensure Positive Outcomes
Beau Necco always wanted to offer services through Necco that makes counseling services accessible. Beau Necco applies professional management and system processes that help ensure every child placed in Necco’s care gets the counseling and other services they need in a timely and orderly fashion. The process begins with a one of Necco’s trained staff members. They will take your information and submit it to the clinical team. Within approximately two days, the clinical team will reach out to schedule an intake assessment. During the course of that first meeting, you will create goals with your professional counselor, and after a strategy has been put in place, the therapeutic process can begin.
It is important to note that no two individuals go through counseling in the same way. While one person may need only a couple of sessions to complete the healing process, another person may require a longer period of counseling to achieve a mentally sound foundation.
Is Counseling the Right Move for My Child?
It can be difficult to navigate if your child may require counseling or if they are simply acting out in a normal adolescent fashion.
However, if your child is presenting several of the indicators below, you may want to consider scheduling a meeting with a counselor.
Several indicators include:
