Pediatric Mental Health

Working with young people means taking a specialized approach — particularly when it comes to mental health. The Child Development Unit (CDU) at Leonard Morse Hospital in Natick offers children ages 3 to 17 a structured environment where they can find the pediatric mental health services that they need. Our board-certified child psychiatrists work with your child to create an individualized plan to deal with whatever issues may be troubling them.

The Leonard Morse Hospital Child Development Unit features:

  • A 14-bed locked, inpatient unit
  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Milieu treatment in a structured environment
  • On-site tutors who work with outside agencies and schools
