Overview

We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of emotional or behavioral disorders affecting children, teens and their families. 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. We offer outpatient consultation to children and adolescents 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, and offer inpatient services on our Akron campus.

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

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.

What Should Families Expect When They Come for an Appointment?

At Akron Children’s, your child’s health and safety is our priority. Please continue to bring your child for wellness visits, vaccinations or sick care appointments that keep children healthy. We want to assure you that we have taken additional precautions to ensure a safe environment for your child and family. The following are additional safety efforts, in addition to our normal cleaning protocols, that we are taking to help you be comfortable bringing your child to an appointment.

Limiting the Number of Caregivers and Face Covering

The number of caregivers permitted to accompany a child to an appointment is dependent on the department you are visiting. Everyone visiting an Akron Children's facility is asked to wear masks or face coverings, except for kids under 2 or those with sensory issues. Masks will be provided for visitors who do not bring their own.

Health Screening Station Ahead Sign

Checking In and Screening of Visitors

Akron Children's now offers Mobile Check-in to limit your exposure to others. You'll receive a text an hour before your child's appointment arrival time. Click the link in the text when you reach the Akron Children's facility for your child's appointment. You will receive a confirmation text that reminds you to wait in your car. Once we determine appropriate spacing is available inside the building, you'll receive a third text to let you know it's OK to come in for your appointment.

Immediately upon entering the building, your temperature will be taken, either by a thermal scanner or a greeter who will also ask you a few questions.

If you are in a waiting room, you’ll notice signs and a limited number of chairs. This is to remind our patients to keep 6 feet of physical distance between your family and others.

Precautions If You Suspect Your Child Has COVID-19

Call your child’s healthcare professional if your child is sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing and has been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19. Your health care professional will work with Ohio’s public health department and the CDC to determine if your child needs to be tested for COVID-19.
