To help meet the growing need for specialized child and adolescent behavioral health services, UPMC Western Behavioral Health opened a new facility that will increase community access.  

The new facility is an additional location for the UPMC New and Expectant Mothers Specialized Treatment Program, which is an intensive outpatient program, with child care available, in collaboration with UPMC Magee-Women's Hospital serving women who are pregnant or up to 12 months postpartum and are struggling with depression and anxiety about parenthood.  

This location is also the new home for an array of trauma-focused services for children. It includes the UPMC Matilda H. Theiss Child Development Center, which provides therapeutic care for children with special needs, as well as adolescent and child outpatient services for trauma, all with a greater capacity for more patients. 

Additionally, this expansion adds another Children Overcoming Obstacles and Limits (COOL) Zone – developed with the support of the Penguins Foundation for young children experiencing a range of behavioral and emotional challenges.
