About Us

Advancing Mental Health Access through Innovation, Community Action, and Compassionate, Data-Driven Care.

Founded in 2011 by Dr. Adam Weissman, The Child & Family Institute (CFI) is a highly specialized mental and behavioral healthcare organization for children, caregivers, adults, and family members of all ages. We offer individualized, tailored care in all kinds of settings—individual, group, couples, family therapy—and for all kinds of mental health needs, as well as comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations, nutritional counseling, speech and occupational therapy, academic support services, and more. CFI is located throughout the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, with telehealth services available in over 30 U.S. states.

CFI supports the Weissman Children’s Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established by Dr. Weissman in early 2020, with a mission to advance mental health access through innovation, community action and crisis relief, and compassionate, data-driven care. Our key partners include Harvard University, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, and CUNY-Hunter College, the Westchester County Government, and the county’s 62 after-school programs in underserved communities. Dr. Weissman and WCF are the recent recipients of Westchester County’s Healthcare Hero, 40 Under 40, and Public Health Awards, as well as the American Psychological Association’s Distinguished Contributions to Practice Award, one of the field’s highest honors.
