Child and Adolescent Outpatient Services

The Child and Adolescent Outpatient Clinic offers children, adolescents and their parents a wide range of mental health treatment options in a less restrictive outpatient setting.  The clinic serves children and adolescents up to age 18 years old with emotional and behavioral disorders including ADHD, anxiety, mood, and adjustment disorders.  A multidisciplinary team of child and adolescent psychiatrists, child psychiatry fellows, psychiatry residents, and social workers staff the clinic to provide evaluations and individualized treatment.  The clinician works closely with the school and other agencies involved in the child's care.  Individual, family, and group therapy and medication management are offered.

To schedule an outpatient appointment, call 843-792-9162.


Three new groups have been added to the clinic starting: Self Esteem for Teenage Girls (Tuesdays), Anger Management for Elementary School-Age Children (Wednesdays), and Social Skills for Elementary School-age Children and Adolescents (Thursdays).  The time is 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. for all groups. Current groups started in September; new groups will be starting in January.  Check back for exact dates.

To register, call 843-792-0135.

The clinic on 2 North began offering a Parent Training Clinic for parents of children ages 3-8 years old.  The parent training will be provided by the fellows under the supervision of Stan Shoemaker, Ph.D. and former director of the IMPACT program.  Sessions will be held on Monday mornings.  A commitment of 8 sessions, every other week, will be needed.
