The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the developmental and behavioral needs of children and adolescents with mental health concerns and to demonstrate how child life services can be used in a variety of settings both in and out of healthcare. This chapter emphasizes how child life specialists can adapt their skills to meet the needs of the pediatric mental health population, their families, and the interdisciplinary team. Child life specialists can provide psychosocial support to psychiatric patients and families by addressing developmental concerns, identifying emotional and coping needs, and advocating for trauma-informed and family-centered care.
