The Children's Center, Utah

Founded over 50 years ago by Dr. Agnes Plenk, The Children’s Center has established a legacy of effective therapy for infants, toddlers and preschoolers with emotional and behavioral problems. We are the only mental health resource in the Salt Lake Valley specifically providing treatment for families whose young children are struggling with psychiatric problems including hyperactivity, depression, anxiety, severe opposition and aggression. Many of those children have been traumatized as witnesses of domestic violence, or have themselves been victims of abuse and neglect. Early intervention is critical because the longer problems go untreated, the less amenable they are to change, and the more expensive they are to treat.


Founded in 1962, The Children's Center provides comprehensive mental health care to enhance the emotional well being of infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families.
