Midwest Academy

The Midwest Center for Youth and Families campus is located on 5 acres of prairie land in a very rural Indiana setting.
The campus features a serene and secure setting that is conducive to healing.
We design treatment based upon individual need using a multidisciplinary approach delivered by our greatest assets, our staff, consisting of physicians, therapists, nurses, teachers and behavioral health workers.
We understand the challenges a parent, foster parent or legal guardian, struggle with caring for a child with mental illness.
Our services are designed and provided in a culturally sensitive framework to acknowledge and honor differences among individuals, families and communities.
We have a reputation for working with youth who has been unresponsive to outpatient, partial hospitalization and in-home treatment services.
We are a leader in our field utilizing the latest clinical outcomes to provide the most meaningful treatment.
In June, 2007, we delivered the first residential setting utilizing Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in the nation for treating females adolescents with self-harming, borderline personality disorder, eating disorders and chemical dependency issues.
