Psychiatric Services for Children
Chicago Lakeshore Hospital provides a safe and secure environment for children with psychiatric, emotional and behavioral disorders. Our continuum of care includes partial hospital and inpatient hospital programs. The treatment experience provides the child with a structured and therapeutic environment to work through developmental, educational, psychological and social problems.
The Children's Program is based on a family systems model, while attending to the accomplishment of developmental tasks. The child is treated within the context of the family. Special programs exist for the treatment of attention deficit disorders, developmental delays and other special problems.
Program Features and Services May Include:
- Individual therapy
- Group or play therapy
- Family therapy
- Case management
- Medication management
We believe a team approach is the most effective method to deliver quality care. The treatment team is led by a psychiatrist and often includes a licensed therapist, psychiatric nurse, activity/recreational therapist, clinical social worker, and mental health counselors. The treatment team offers not only their clinical expertise and experience, but also their concern and compassion.
