The pediatric behavioral health team at NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln includes clinical psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, and mental health therapists. Team members speak many languages and represent many cultures. They provide comprehensive health services for children and adolescents that starts with an initial assessment, a treatment plan, medication and therapy, if needed.
Part of our program also includes close work with the schools to ensure that teachers are able to help us reinforce the new behaviors children learn in our care.
Our team of medical professionals can triage families looking for the most appropriate services and assist in referring them to other agencies where appropriate. Our 24-hour crisis service can be accessed through the Pediatric Emergency Department.
