The Division of Psychosocial Services is a national leader in providing social, emotional and spiritual support services for our patients, their families and caregivers and Children's Mercy staff. Our programs provide children with clinical interventions and innovative care and treatment approaches based on available evidence-based interventions. Our clinical team helps support children and families to prevent and treat illness and injury, and to receive support when they return to their own communities.
