• Managing Mental Illness

    It is important to know that your child is not alone. Nearly 20 percent of children in the United States are believed to have a diagnosable mental illness in any given year. At Cincinnati Children's, we have extensive experience in helping young people manage their conditions so they can live their lives as fully as possible.

    Our team of psychiatrists, psychologists, advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) and social workers (LISW) in our Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry use evidence-based approaches – proven to be the most advanced and most effective – to treat the full spectrum of child and adolescent mental and behavioral health problems.

    We Treat a Range of Conditions

    We use cognitive-based therapies as the foundation for treating illnesses such as depression, anxiety and trauma-related disorders. We also work with youth diagnosed with bipolar and mood disorders, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress and obsessive-compulsive disorders. We use a variety of therapeutic techniques including behavioral interventions, child-focused therapy and interpersonal therapy.

    Our Programs

    Our division provides a continuum of services including outpatient, partial hospitalization, acute inpatient and resident care. All of our programs support family-centered care, in which treatment plans focus on the needs of both the patient and family.

    In addition to caring for young people and their families, we provide professional training and conduct research aimed at improving outcomes for our patients.
