Psychiatry

At Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health, we offer both inpatient and outpatient services. Our highly trained psychiatrists treat everything from emotional problems to mood and developmental disorders.

Our specialists 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.

The role of our psychiatrists is to identify and diagnose mental health problems and educate families on coping with the problem and encouraging the patient in his or her treatment.
