Seattle Children's Hospital - Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine

​At Seattle Children's Hospital, our Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine team works to diagnose, treat and prevent problems with emotions and behavior. We see children and teens up to age 18, and sometimes​ longer, if they still need care from mental health experts who treat young people.
 
We provide short-term individual and group treatment. If your child needs longer-term care, we connect you with people and resources in the community who can meet your child's needs. Children with ​complex mental health problems may need to stay in the hospital and if this happens, we have the Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit (PBMU) with 25 beds. Our focus in the PBMU is to help your child during a mental health crisis and ensure their immediate safety.

Please contact Seattle Children’s Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine for additional information about our services, including help with scheduling an appointment.
