Child and Adolescent

Parents of children with mental and behavioral health problems look for help from the professional expertise offered by Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

Services are provided through two separate and distinct programs, each with its own special areas of focus in caring for troubled children and their families.


The Virginia Treatment Center for Children (VTCC) offers both inpatient programs – including acute care crisis stabilization and evaluations – and outpatient programs – including evaluations, family and individual therapy and specialty clinics. Its programs are designed for children of school age through 17 years.


The Psychology Department on the Brook Road Campus specializes in working with children from birth to age 17 who have psychological needs related to medical, emotional and behavioral issues, and neuropsychological evaluations following a neurological injury or illness.
