The pediatric psychiatrists at Children’s Minnesota evaluate kids and adolescents who suffer from a variety of mental or behavioral health issues and provide medication management for those that need a prescription medication. To expand mental health services for kids, Children’s Minnesota opened an inpatient mental health unit at the St. Paul hospital in 2022. Learn more about the unit.
