Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Marco Grados standing in front of the window of the Johns Hopkins Children's CenterChild psychiatrist Marco Grados is part of a multidisciplinary team that provides both intenisve inpatient treatments and outpatient services.

The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry was founded by Dr. Leo Kanner in 1930. Kanner was the first physician to be identified as a child psychiatrist in this country, and his 1935 textbook, Child Psychiatry, is credited with introducing the specialty to the academic community. Today, the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins continues to provide the highest quality care to its patients. Building upon the vision of its founders, the division remains at the forefront of patient care, professional education and research.

We offer hospital-based intensive evaluation and treatment programs, as well as outpatient services. Within Hopkins Children's Center, there are two inpatient units: a partial hospitalization program and a consultation program. We also offer multiple psychiatry services in the community. Our multidisciplinary team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers and teachers. Other pediatric subspecialists are available as needed, and care is closely coordinated with outpatient providers.
