BJC Behavioral Health
BJC-Behavioral Health will provide initial psychiatric evaluations to children and adolescents, with subsequent psychiatric treatment as deemed clinically appropriate for each child and their family. We will make comprehensive treatment recommendations as it relates to pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions. We will provide direct treatments, where appropriate, with recommended referrals in the community or within our organization, when appropriate. BJC Behavioral Health will take referrals from anyone within the community seeking psychiatric evaluation for a child of any age.
