The Behavioral Health Services comprehensive approach to care is provided by a multidisciplinary team – which may include a psychiatrist, developmental-behavioral pediatrician, nurse practitioner, psychologist, clinical social worker, and clinical counselor – to determine the best treatment options for each child and adolescent.
More than one-third of the children served by Nationwide Children’s outpatient programs require assessment and/or treatment for ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder).
A variety of services are available to assist children, adolescents and families in coping with this disorder. Initial diagnosis evaluations, family education and counseling, behavior management, medication consultation and management, and school consultation/ coordination, are all provided by our specialized professional staff.
If you think your child or family could benefit from Nationwide Children’s Behavioral Health Services, please call (614) 355-8080 or request an appointment online.
If your family is in a crisis situation and needs immediate help, please call your county’s mental health crisis number. In Franklin County, call (614) 722-1800 for youth and adolescents 17 and under. Ages 18 and older should call (614) 276-2273.
