Beyond Healthcare provides holistic mental health care to teens (aged 11-17) and their families.  We help families heal by providing both full day and after school behavioral healthcare programs coupled with medication management to give kids the tools to manage their mental health conditions and succeed in life.

We are always here for you when it’s convenient for you because we know that, as a parent, your time is important. Whether in our center, your community, or even online, our therapists are readily available to meet with you and help better equip your family with the tools they need.

About Beyond Healthcare Fairlawn

Beyond Healthcare is a leading mental healthcare outpatient provider in Ohio, serving adolescents, teens, and their families. We offer holistic mental health care in a highly personalized manner that addresses the body, mind, and spirit. We acknowledge the impact that past and current trauma have on overall health, address basic needs, and pride ourselves on building trusting relationships with our clients. We provide care wherever it is convenient for each family: online, in the community, or in our care center near Akron. We are committed to being agents of change in reducing stigma and building a purposeful community as a key to our clients’ lifelong wellness. Parents shouldn’t have to struggle alone or in shame when they have an adolescent who has behavioral challenges or mental health concerns.

Creating a Community

In 2021, Beyond Healthcare was created. Our leaders began to imagine how they might best serve the needs of teenagers and families in crisis after the toll the pandemic began to take on people’s mental health. Together, they built a community where stigma can’t grow. In our community, holistic healing is not just a catchphrase—it’s the foundation for what we do.

Core Values that Matter

Our core values are at the center of every decision we make and are reflected in the care we provide each person. These values allow us to go:

  • Beyond the basics: We do what’s best.
  • Beyond comfort: We are courageous.
  • Beyond perfection: We are humble.
  • Beyond Healthcare: We are inclusive and holistic.
