Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

University Departments of the MedUni Vienna / Vienna General Hospital

Head: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Paul Plener, MHBA

The mental and emotional development of children and adolescents is a long and complex process and it does not always go smoothly. Every child is different and has its own individual story. Psychological illnesses are common in our society and throughout the world, and can occur at any time of life. 

The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Medical University of Vienna offers excellent, guideline-oriented care to children and adolescents and their families. The primary concern is to identify risks and problems at an early stage, to treat them consistently and to try to understand their causes.

The Department's multidisciplinary team includes experienced and committed child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists, speech therapists, music therapists, psychotherapists, nurses, social education workers, special nursery nurses and social workers.
