Will’s Place, developed by Ozark Center in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Mental Health, provides comprehensive behavioral health services to children ages 0-21. Services provided include psychiatric services, outpatient therapy for children and families, psychological evaluations, and targeted case management. All services, developmentally- and age-appropriate, are responsive to the child’s social/cultural situation and communication needs.
