UNM Children's Psychiatric Center provides quality psychiatric treatment to seriously emotionally disturbed children. In addition, they provide family education and treatment to strengthen understanding of, and capacity to manage their children. They work with families, community agencies, and schools to facilitate the child's successful return to family and community.
