Map and Directions

PCAAD has the dual mission. First, we provide high quality clinical care for children and adolescents suffering from a range of anxiety and affective disorders. Second, we work as researchers to expand what is known about the causes, diagnosis and treatment of affective and anxiety disorders in youth. Much of our clinical care is provided in the context of our research projects.

We make every effort to provide the best available care to all communities, while ensuring that our research is not applicable to a limited demographic. This is done by coordinating with other sites throughout the country and a firm commitment to working with a diverse population.

In addition to research studies, the PCAAD program provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment based on current research in the area of childhood anxiety and mood disorders. (top)
