Child and Adolescent Outpatient Services

Mission

Our mission is to provide the most up-to-date, evidence-based clinical care to children and adolescents who are suffering from psychiatric illness. Through an understanding of the multiple biological, psychological, and social factors related to a child's problems, we deliver comprehensive psychiatric evaluations and innovative treatment plans to help alleviate their symptoms. We offer pharmacologic evaluation and ongoing medication management, as well as individual therapy, based on the needs of our patients. We are also dedicated to developing additional therapeutic services for patients and families, including group therapy and parent management training. We strive to work in collaboration with families to best understand the problems they face and to utilize their inherent strengths to improve their lives.

Our experienced child and adolescent psychiatry faculty are nationally renowned and have expertise in a wide range of disorders, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, learning disorders, autism spectrum disorders, developmental delays, and behavioral problems. We are also devoted to the education and training of future child and adolescent mental health providers and the advancement of research in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.
