The Boston Children’s Hospital Department of Psychiatry treats diseases and disorders that affect the mental, emotional and social health of children and adolescents. Our strengths in scientific research and mental health advocacy help us deliver innovative, family-centered care for conditions ranging from bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to depression, anxiety disorders and disruptive behavior disorders.
Also, our collaborations with specialists across Children’s allow us to help patients and families who are feeling anxiety, sadness, anger and fear related to other medical conditions like cancer and heart disease.
In each of our specialty programs, a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses and other clinicians works together to develop a treatment plan that focuses on your child as an individual—not merely a patient. Starting with your first visit, you’ll meet compassionate professionals who are committed to delivering the highest standard of care for your child while supporting the needs of your entire family.
