It is my pleasure to welcome you to the web site of the Child and Family Institute at St. Luke's and Roosevelt Hospitals. For over half a century, the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center (SLRHC), a University Hospital of Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, has been an integral part of the Department of Psychiatry. Beginning in the late 1940's, before Child and Adolescent Psychiatry was even a recognized field, St. Luke's (SL) and Roosevelt (RH) Hospitals were providing care to children and their families afflicted by mental illness. The skilled, multidisciplinary mental health professionals in the Division provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for children, adolescents, and their families whose problems range from mild behavioral difficulties to severe psychiatric illness. In addition, the division has nationally renowned training programs for mental health professionals, including a residency program in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, an internship program in Child Psychology, postdoctoral fellowships in Child Psychology, and an internship program in clinical Social Work, all of which combine clinical and research training.
This website contains information about the work of The Child and Family Institute including our clinical programs, our educational activities and our current research studies. We hope that this site provides you with important information on the work of our trainees, staff, and faculty.
