There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
For more than 60 years, we have tended to the mental health care of children, adolescents and their families by caring for patients and advocating on their behalf.
Our experienced psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and nurses understand the wide-reaching impact of a behavioral disorder, emotional problem or psychiatric disease, and we will give your child and family all of the tools you need to manage your unique situation. Depending on your family’s needs, we’ll see your child individually or with your family, in or outside of the hospital setting.
We’re known around the world for our strengths in patient care and scientific research, and we also take pride in our public advocacy. We are dedicated to erasing the stigma of mental illness by educating families, raising community awareness and increasing access to critical support services.
In partnership with others in our community, the Boston Children’s Hospital Department of Psychiatry will provide excellence and innovation in Clinical Care, Education, Research and Advocacy for the Mental Health of Children and Families.
When a child is faced with a behavioral disorder, emotional problem or psychiatric disease, the impact is far-reaching—affecting everything from the child’s home, school and social life to the emotional wellness of the entire family. If your child has a mental health issue requiring professional intervention, we are here to help.
You and your child can rely upon the extensive experience and caring, solution-focused approach of your Boston Children’s Hospital team to help determine the best course of treatment. Here are some of the trained, certified specialists you and your child may meet in the Department of Psychiatry:
Boston Children’s Hospital Advocates for Child Mental Health Reform Across Massachusetts
The Children's Mental Health Campaign (CMHC) is a coalition of families, advocates, health care providers, educators, and consumers from across Massachusetts dedicated to comprehensive reform of the children's mental health system. The Coalition is led by five partner organizations - the Boston Children's Hospital, Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, the Parent/Professional Advocacy League, Health Care For All, and Health Law Advocates - and includes more than 160 supporting organizations across Massachusetts. The Campaign's goal is to lay the foundation for a comprehensive and coordinated system of evidence-based mental health prevention, diagnosis and treatment that is accessible to all children, adolescents and families.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
