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.

Services We Offer

  • Psychiatry - Doctors specially-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with mental health disorders.
  • Counseling Center - Outpatient counseling with therapists dedicated to the behavioral health needs of children and adolescents.
  • Children's Behavioral Health Services - More intensive inpatient and outpatient services for children and adolescents facing challenges at home, school or in the community.
  • Adolescent Behavioral Services - For teens in need of treatment for mental health.
  • Psychological Services - Pediatric psychologists trained to promote the health and psychological well-being of children, youth and their families through an evidence-based approach to treatment.
