Unparalleled Behavioral Health Services

At Avera Children's Hospital, we believe comprehensive care means caring for the whole person - body, mind and spirit. For children (and adults as well) mental health is just as important as physical health. In fact, children are more likely to need treatment or hospitalization for behavioral health disorders such as ADHD, depression or anxiety disorder, than any other reason.

Avera has state-of-the-art, specialized units with 40+ beds for children and adolescents at Avera Behavioral Health Center. What's more, several psychiatrists and psychologists dedicate their practice to solely caring for children.

We are the only hospital in the region to offer behavioral services at this level of sophistication and attention to you and your child.
