Just like adults, children may face psychological and emotional challenges. Problems at home or school can bring on anxiety and depression. Conditions such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and learning disabilities may be mistaken for behavioral problems. Because such problems often have no physical symptoms, they may go unnoticed by parents and teachers. Kids struggle on, unaware that their problems have answers and help is available.
We at Mercy Kids know a child’s psychological health is just as important as physical health, and that both are essential to overall well-being. Our pediatric behavioral health specialists focus on understanding your child’s unique personality, behavior and challenges, and work with them to find the right treatments for their individual needs.
Our behavioral health experts diagnose and treat conditions including:
Our child behavioral health specialists include psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) and nurse practitioners.

We know how difficult it can be to see a child struggle with behavioral health problems, and we’re here to help your child and your family along the path to healing.
