The Saint Luke’s Crittenton Clinic helps children who are demonstrating dysfunctional behavior or symptoms of a mental illness. 

These children may have been exposed to trauma in the past which can have a long-lasting effect on their ability to cope in stressful situations. 

Crittenton Clinic services can help reduce stress and conflict within families; improve parenting skills; help children and families deal with traumatic situations; and address behavioral and social difficulties.

Our team of board-certified psychiatrists, licensed psychologists, licensed social workers, and licensed professional counselors offers a wide range of services, such as psychiatric evaluation, medication management, psychological testing, psychotherapy, and evidence-based care plans.

To see a Crittenton Clinic provider, please request a referral from your primary care physician. If you would like to discuss available care options or need assistance with a referral, call 816-767-4346.
