Overview

We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of emotional or behavioral disorders affecting children, teens and their families. Ranging from outpatient care to acute inpatient treatment, our mental health services include medication management, educational consultation and testing, psychological testing, individual therapy and family counseling.

We have one focus: kids.

We have advanced training in helping children and teens with emotional, behavioral and developmental disorders. In addition to providing care on our inpatient unit, we offer outpatient consultation to young people dealing with the stress of a chronic medical condition, anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. We also provide consultation for children admitted for medical and/or surgical care who may also be experiencing emotional or mental health issues.

If your child or teen is experiencing a mental health crisis, our behavioral health emergency services, located within Akron Children's Hospital's emergency department, is dedicated to evaluating and treating children and teens who present to our ER with mental and behavioral problems.

We also have a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week triage and referral service that links families to behavioral health services in Summit County and beyond. Our Pediatric Intake Response Center (PIRC) is staffed by licensed independent social workers and licensed professional clinical counselors who are trained to assess a child’s mental, emotional and behavioral healthcare needs. Call 330-543-7472 to access PIRC.

Conditions that may lead to a referral to pediatric psychiatry/psychology include developmental or emotional problems, traumatic stress, sexual or physical abuse, psychological components of physical illness, learning problems, changes in dietary habits or suicidal concerns.
