The ANDRUS Early Recognition Program

Screening children in Yonkers for cognitive, emotional and behavioral development issues

The earlier a child’s mental health issues are identified, the more successfully they can be treated.

Funded by the New York State Office of Mental Health, the ANDRUS Early Recognition Program provides a range of services to help build awareness of mental health issues in children and link families in the Yonkers area with information and resources to help promote healthy development.

Mental health screenings

Families in Yonkers with children ages 2 to 18 can benefit from:

ANDRUS clinicians are bilingual, and all services are voluntary and completely confidential.

Community workshops

In children, the untreated emotional effects of trauma can manifest in poor academic performance, conflicts with family and friends, self-destructive behaviors, and physical problems. Early identification and intervention can relieve psychological symptoms, reduces emotional distress, and build resiliency.

The ANDRUS Early Recognition Program offers workshops that help parents and community partners understand what trauma is, how it impacts children, and what we can do about it.
