Mental health issues are not always obvious in children and teenagers. Your child might be suffering from depression or anxiety, but as a parent, you might see only angry outbursts.
Children and teenagers do suffer from mental and behavioral health issues, however. They can develop many of the same problems as adults, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosis and others.
At Sutter Center for Psychiatry there are both inpatient and outpatient levels of care. Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Care is available for individuals, ages 13-17. Admission to this program can be directly from the community or as a step-down service from an inpatient hospitalization stay. Higher levels of care are available through our Inpatient Psychiatric Services, which provide around-the-clock care by a specialized team for individuals, ages 5-17.
