Child and Adolescent Mental Health Programs

Event proceeds will benefit the child and adolescent mental health programs at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and Stanford University School of Medicine. 

The Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Child Development in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is an integral part of one of the preeminent child and adolescent mental health treatment consortiums in the country, which includes Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, Stanford Children’s Health, Stanford Hospital & Clinics, and Stanford University School of Medicine.

The mission of the Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Child Development is advancing science through exploration of psychopathology in children and adolescents; psychotherapy process and outcomes; early childhood stress/trauma; and psychological adjustment. Our goal is to increase understanding of the pathophysiology of youth mental health concerns including mood, eating, childhood medical, anxiety, and autism related disorders using innovative translational approaches ranging from stem cell research to imaging and clinical trials. These research programs are frequently integrated into clinical services through the Outpatient Specialty Clinics:

•    Autism and Developmental Disorders Research Program

•    Eating Disorders Research Program

•    Pediatric Bipolar Disorders Program

•    Social Neurosciences Research Program
