Blank Children's Hospital

Behavioral Health

The field of psychiatry and behavioral medicine addresses the mental health needs of children and adolescents. At Blank Children's Hospital, our team works to diagnose, treat and prevent emotional and behavioral problems for children from infancy through age 18. However, in some instances patients continue to be seen into young adulthood when their mental health disorder requires pediatric expertise.

We partner with UnityPoint Health - Des Moines to provide behavioral health services for children and adolescents. We also partner with professionals in the community to help meet the needs of our patients.
