We make youth mental wellness a priority

Many children and teens experience issues with mental health, emotional wellness, and substance use. These struggles are common, and most are treatable. But it’s hard for parents to know when and how to help, and where to find support. Kaiser Permanente’s skilled, experienced team of physicians is here for you and your family, and ready to deliver the compassionate care your child needs.

The Mid-Atlantic Permanente Group’s Pediatric Institute offers specific specialties to support your child’s mental health needs, including Pediatric Psychiatry and Pediatric Psychotherapy. Kaiser Permanente also started the Find Your Words campaign to help parents and children get the support and resources they need to better recognize and address their mental and emotional well-being.


Choosing the right pediatrician for your family

Our award-winning pediatric team is uniquely suited to provide your child with excellent care because of the integrated care system that connects them to pharmacists, diagnostics, and medical facilities. Connected by your child’s electronic health record, the care team can track vaccines, review test results, dispense medication, and communicate seamlessly with one another. They work together to make the right care decisions and provide both the routine and targeted specialty care your child requires.

Our interconnected system also makes life easier on you as a busy parent. Most services, from your pediatrician and specialists to your labs and X-rays, are in the same location. And we offer a variety of telehealth options so you can access care from the comfort of your home, or on the go.
