Clinical psychologists provide pediatric psychology services to children and adolescents who are newly diagnosed or have chronic medical conditions at Children’s Mercy. We care for children in our hospitals and clinics who have conditions like cancer, diabetes, traumatic injuries, solid organ transplant, or chronic pain conditions.
The pediatric psychology team also provides consultation services to children and adolescents who are currently in the hospital. Pediatric psychologists assess youth for mental or behavioral health concerns and provide treatment and support as needed. They work closely with the medical team caring for your child.
