Pediatric Psychiatry at Connecticut Children’s

Connecticut Children’s psychiatrists are board-certified in child and adolescent psychiatry. We’re experts in diagnosing and treating the full range of psychiatric conditions and mental health concerns in children, teens and young adults. At this time, the Division of Psychiatry is not able to accommodate referrals for outpatient treatment. 

If you feel your child is in crisis, or a danger to themselves or others, call 911.

In Connecticut, you can also call 211 for emergency or crisis intervention. For free, confidential support from the National Suicide Prevention Life Line, call 1.800.273.8255 or text “HOME” to 741741.
