Adolescent and Child Psychiatrist Services

At UCR Health, our adolescent and child psychiatrists recognize the mental health and behavioral challenges that many pediatric patients and their families face. Parents may wonder if their child’s behavior is just a part of growing up – or due to a more serious mental health concern. 

UCR Health psychiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating a wide range of mental health issues that impact a child or teen’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Using a biopsychosocial framework, they examine the biological, psychological, and social factors affecting your child, and develop a plan of care unique to their individual needs. Our doctors work with your family and your child towards the goal of improved ability to function and positive behavioral changes. 

The caring and experienced physicians and staff at UCR Health are here to provide family support and outpatient mental health services for children and teens ages three to 17.
