Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrie

The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapeutic Medicine provides cutting-edge treatment in an outpatient setting for children and adolescents up to the age of 18 with mental illness. If partial inpatient treatment or complete hospitalization is required, the division closely cooperates with LKH II, where patients may be admitted if desired by all parties and seen as necessary by the outpatient clinic doctor.

The clinic serves all patients who exhibit symptoms on the pediatric and adolescent psychiatry spectrum and would like a diagnosis or treatment (and their parents). Our approach is solution-oriented and patient-centered. Symptoms have causes, which we would like to discover and treat in cooperation with patients of all ages.

Following the initial appointment and any diagnostic testing, decisions on how to proceed are always made by the psychiatrist, the patient and their legal guardians based on detailed information.

Legal guardians are normally involved in the treatment. However, there may be topics that arise in adolescence where young people would like their discussions with a doctor or therapist to remain confidential. This is possible as long as no danger exists and the consent of a legal guardian is not required (e.g., medication).

Specialized clinics deal with the following topics:

  • Eating disorders 
  • Trans* health
  • Developmental and behavioral issues (ADHS, autism, developmental disorders of early childhood)
