Tykes & Teens, Inc. is one the leading providers of evidence-based behavioral health services for children and adolescents since 1996. We began services in Martin County to ensure all children have access to high-quality care, regardless of financial status. Now serving St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee counties, we empower youth through innovative programs and strong community partnerships.

Telehealth Care
