What it is

Allina Health Mental Health & Addiction services helps children and adolescents work through times when the troubles of life interfere with their ability to function or cope.

Good for treating

Children or teens with:

  • anxiety, depression and other mental or emotional concerns
  • attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • sexual or gender identity issues

Good to know

Pediatric psychiatrists may work with parents, doctors, psychologists and social workers to benefit the behavioral and mental health of children and teens.

What to expect

For the first session, your child or teen will meet with a psychiatrist or mental health clinician whose expertise matches your needs. For children and teens, a parent or guardian's input is needed. The purpose of the "intake" appointment is to learn about your child’s needs and the best plan of treatment to proceed with.

In order to focus treatment effectively, the mental health provider will need to understand your child’s:

  • background
  • current problem
  • medical history
  • strengths.
