Mental Health Services

Child Health Investment Partnership (CHIP) of Roanoke Valley expanded its program model to include therapeutic mental health services for both adult caretakers and children. CHIP of Roanoke Valley’s Counseling Center provides individualized counseling sessions, play therapy and support groups. 

Play therapy helps children express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts and feelings. Enrolled children benefit from a therapeutic play space and receive play therapy to help them resolve psychosocial challenges. Parents receive support to better understand their child’s emotional needs and how to meet them, which promotes secure attachment and overall family functioning.
