A psychiatric illness can create a frightening, challenging situation for children and parents alike. The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Cincinnati Children’s offers this list of resources to help children with mental illness and their families learn about and manage their conditions.
When you have a child with special healthcare needs, you face the constant challenge of finding information and resources. The Special Needs Resource Directory can connect you to local, regional and national websites covering a wide variety of topics including community mental health resources, special education supports, recreation, support groups and online communities, financial assistance, and transition to adulthood.
Family-centered care is an innovative approach to the planning, delivery and evaluation of healthcare that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among patients, families and providers. Family-centered care is a concept that describes teamwork among treatment team, parents, caregivers and families in patient care. As part of our family-centered care, we listen to and honor patient and family perspectives by incorporating patient and family knowledge, values, beliefs and cultural backgrounds into the planning and delivery of care. Team members share information with patients and families, encouraging and supporting participation in decision making.
We focus on quality-improvement initiatives to meet the needs of families to improve outcomes and quality of care. Our goal is to encourage strategies that lead toward wholeness, healing and strength.
We provide evaluations and intervention for a broad spectrum of child and adolescent mental and behavioral health concerns ranging from mood, adjustment and anxiety disorders to behavioral and developmental concerns.
Conditions we evaluate and treat include:
For more information on any of these conditions or questions about your child’s diagnosis, contact the Family Resource Center at the College Hill Campus at 513-636-7808.
We provide educational services in a structured, safe environment for all students as they undergo mental health treatment.
Staffed by teachers from Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS), our educational programs function on a traditional school schedule and are provided to all residential patients.
The teenage years can be an extremely challenging time for adolescents and their families. The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Cincinnati Children’s created Surviving the Teens to provide information, resources and support to help guide teens and families through the ups and downs they might face.
Visit the Surviving the Teens / Suicide Prevention Program for information on issues ranging from dealing with everyday stress to suicide prevention.
