The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, in the Department of Psychiatry, is a national leader in translational programs, combining world class teaching, research and integrated clinical programs. Our program’s comprehensive approach includes collaborations within the Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, and David Geffen School of Medicine. The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is devoted to understanding the genetic, biological, behavioral, and sociocultural underpinnings of childhood and adolescent development and behavior. The Division's research funding has more than doubled over the past 5 years to a total annual funding in excess of $25.6M. The Division has also established itself as one of the premier programs in developing evidence-based approaches for psychotherapeutic treatment for a variety of childhood disorders.
