Introducing PM Pediatrics Behavioral Health, a robust consultation and therapy program conducted virtually

At PM Pediatrics we believe in the health of the whole child or young adult —from the physical to the emotional to the behavioral, and every space in between.

And we recognize that the pandemic has caused a significant increase in behavioral health needs for children and young adults ages 5 and up.

We support multiple needs of our patients and their families with a wide-range of services including therapy, medication management when indicated, nutrition, and sleep experts. Our focus goes beyond mental health needs and emphasizes the overall wellness of the patient and family.

That’s why we are proud to introduce the PM Pediatrics Behavioral Health program. With this new offering, we are committed to providing the same high level of evidence-based treatment found in our urgent cares, to children’s and young adult’s behavioral health needs—so together, we can keep your children healthy, happy, and safe.

Our approach to behavioral health

Too often behavioral health is treated in a silo. When it comes to your child’s care, we know the best outcomes are a result of open communication, partnership, and personalization.

PM Pediatrics Behavioral Health is individually designed to fit your family’s unique needs and schedule, providing you with high quality, comprehensive care that includes close collaboration with your child’s family, pediatrician, and school, if needed.

Our top quality care is carried out by expert pediatric providers who will seamlessly exchange information with your primary pediatrician.

Our program is available for non-emergency mental health conditions in children and young adults 5-26 years old who are currently living in select states, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADD/ADHD
  • OCD
  • PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
  • Conduct Disorders
  • School Avoidance, Family Issues
  • Parenting support
  • Grief support
  • Sleep Coaching (ages 0-26)

Any child or young adult at risk of immediately harming themselves or others should be seen in an emergency department.

How our program works:

After thorough evaluation using input from you, your child, and health professionals who know your child best, your child will be matched with a member of our team of expert - Licensed Therapists, Child Psychologists, Social Workers, Certified Sleep Coaches and Pediatricians with specialty training in medication, if needed.

Please note at this time, PM Pediatrics Behavioral Health is currently only available in select states.
