SecurePath Outreach

Mental health assessments and interventions for young children are sometimes best provided in the child’s home or school setting. SecurePath is a comprehensive mental health service for young children in Wake County provided at the child’s home or preschool. Our staff offers mental health assessments, interventions, and therapy for children ages birth to five and their parents who need help with their child’s social, emotional, or developmental challenges. Clinicians focus on parent-child relationship and strong attachment. Services are provided in English and Spanish.

Getting Started

Before requesting a referral, please note that the Secure Path program is:

  • An early intervention mental health program serving caregivers and their children ages birth-five who are having emotional and/or behavioral issues at home or outside the home
  • An in-home service (COVID-19 restrictions may require some services to be provided virtually)
  • For children who live in Wake County
  • For children with Medicaid, or without health insurance
