Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Many children and adolescents have mental health problems that interfere with their normal development and daily life activities. Examples include attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders. Some mental health problems are mild, while others are more severe. Some mental health problems last for only short periods of time, while others may last a lifetime.

The care of these children requires a team effort between mental health professionals, pediatric specialists, and school systems to ensure that children and their families receive the care they need and are linked with resources in their communities. This is the approach taken by child and adolescent psychiatry experts at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, which offers inpatient and outpatient care for children and adolescents.


John T. Walkup, M.D., is the Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Westchester Division.
