Pediatric Mental Health

Baylor Scott & White McLane Niños

We care for kids with behavioral and emotional disorders and substance abuse problems

Pediatric mental health is a specialty that treats children and adolescents with behavioral, emotional and psychiatric disorders. The pediatric mental health team includes child psychiatrists, psychologists and professional counselors.

Our doctors and counselors see patients at our outpatient clinic and also take care of children with mental health issues when they stay in the hospital.

We offer individual and family counseling as appropriate. Psychiatric, psychosocial, and neuropsychological evaluations are available.

Conditions we treat
Although it is mostly thought to be a disorder that affects adults, children can also suffer from depression.
Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
Children with ODD are often hostile to authority figures. This disorder is more common in boys.
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Children with ADHD can show a spectrum of symptoms, including inattentiveness, overactivity, and impulsiveness. Our mental health specialists are trained in providing behavioral and other treatments.
