No matter what’s troubling your child, we’ve had experience treating it

The behavioral health program at Children’s Minnesota is full of experts who diagnose and treat a wide range of mental health issues in children and teens. Our psychologists and psychiatrists are leaders in their fields who are skilled at understanding kids and their problems — and helping parents understand, too.

Mental health issues can manifest themselves in many forms. Here are just some of the conditions and issues we treat:

Personalized service

Your child isn’t like any other. At Children’s we understand every child and every family is different. That’s why we work with you and your child to create a unique treatment plan. Here’s a sampling of the services we offer:

  • Outpatient therapy — Face-to-face meetings with a psychologist or doctoral intern to diagnose and treat a condition.
  • Psychological assessment — A series of tests and interviews that can help us better understand your child, his or her challenges and the best treatment options.
  • Neuropsychological assessment — A series of tests to evaluate possible medical, neurological and developmental issues children may have.
  • Inpatient consults — We provide a wide range of services for children who are admitted to the hospital for medical treatment.
  • Psychiatric assessment — The psychiatrists on our team are available to meet with children for psychiatric evaluation and medication management of children who may need a prescription medicine to treat mental or behavioral health issues.
  • Medication management — We provide ongoing management of any medicines your child needs for mental or behavioral health conditions.
  • Developmental pediatrics — We have a whole team dedicated to working with children who have developmental issues.

As an organization dedicated to family-centered care, we also offer many child and family services and resources, such as interpretive services.



At Children’s, we know how important reliable information about conditions and illnesses is.
