Blank Children's Hospital


The child and adolescent psychiatry team cares for children and teens with mental health and behavior problems. We strive to provide the highest level of care for each patient. We work to identify and understand the problems your child is having and then put together a plan for your child and family to help start the road to a healthy, normal life. We work with your child's therapist and any other specialists involved in their care and treatment.

Our Providers

Your Child's First Clinic Visit

Your child's first visit at the Blank Children's Psychiatry Clinic will probably be the longest. Please plan to be at the clinic for approximately one hour. We ask that you arrive 15 to 20 minutes ahead of your child's appointment to complete medical history and insurance information forms. You will want to bring the following information along to your child's first appointment (unless our office has already received it):

  • Referral information from your child's primary provider.
  • Medical records from your child's primary provider.
  • Results of any previous evaluations.


Prior approvals from your child's primary provider and insurance plan may be necessary before each visit.

**We have nurses on-call by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for our clinic patients. Call the clinic to access services after-hours - 515.263.5153.**
