Our Lady of the Lake's Children’s Hospital Psychiatry Department offers both inpatient and outpatient services. Our highly trained psychiatrists treat everything from emotional problems to mood and developmental disorders.
They are educated in the latest behavioral medicine practices and will conduct an assessment of your child's mental health, often after interviewing the family and other care providers before recommending treatment with or without medical prescriptions.
