The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has enjoyed a remarkable year in 2015. Our team focused on increasing access, efficiency, effectiveness and safety of children’s behavioral healthcare. We led new initiatives to improve and standardize care for some of the most complex patients. We have developed clinical pathways for the management of patients with developmental disabilities and mental health conditions.
This year we have launched an exciting and innovate neurosciences research program, the Life Span Brain Institute (LiBI). Our neuroscientists, at CHOP and Penn, continue to lead the nation in research in disorders of attention, cognition, psychosis, mood and anxiety, autism, and medical and mental health comorbidities.
