We provide assessments, recommendations, and support for a variety of behavioral health needs for children and their families while they are admitted to the Children’s Medical Center.

  • Safety and risk assessment
  • Assistance in coping with a new or chronic medical illness
  • Evaluation of a child who has experienced a traumatic event
  • Referrals for more intensive or outpatient psychiatric treatment

The inpatient pediatric care team may ask our staff to work with a family to lessen the impact of a stressful experience, promote healthy coping methods, and help a child and family return to emotional well-being.
