Partnering to Provide Comprehensive Psychiatric Treatment

Your child will be cared for by an expert team of clinicians, which includes:

  • A child and adolescent psychiatrist
  • A child and adolescent psychologist
  • Social workers specially trained to care for children
  • Residents and fellows who are studying child and adolescent psychiatry

Our team members work very closely together —  with your child and you — to provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan. Whenever possible, we try to arrange for children to receive necessary therapies and treatment in their own communities. Our clinicians partner with your family, schools, pediatrician and various community agencies to ensure that he or she can get care as close to home as possible.

Some children and adolescents with neurologically based problems may also require the expertise of a pediatric neurologist. University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital is home to some of the most respected pediatric neurologists and pediatric neurosurgeons in the Chicago area. Our child psychiatrists often work side-by-side with these specialists to address a wide range of problems that affect learning and behavior.
