The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Our teams work every day to deliver the highest standards of care, advance the science of the developing brain and empower parents, professionals, and policymakers to support children when and where they need it most. Together with our supporters, we're helping children reach their full potential in school and in life. We share all of our resources freely and do not accept any funding from the pharmaceutical industry.


The Child Mind Institute is pleased to announce the opening of a clinical center in San Mateo. Our west coast operation will tackle barriers to mental healthcare by providing best-in-class clinical care including evaluations and intensive, evidence-based treatments tailored to each child’s individual needs. We will expand access to services through financial aid funding for patient care and free online resources for parents, educators, and policymakers. The Child Mind Institute is deeply committed to partnering with the Bay Area community through our school-based services, public education events, and community-based mental health trainings.


The Child Mind Medical Practice is a multidisciplinary team of psychologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, social workers, speech-language therapists and learning specialists. We work closely with each other to ensure that each family gets the care and attention they need. Our clinicians are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral and developmental problems. We have particular expertise working with children with ADHD and behavior disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, and learning and developmental disabilities, and provide state-of-the-art diagnostic evaluations and treatment informed by the latest research.


We are seeking a child and adolescent psychiatrist with exceptional clinical skills in diagnosis and strong expertise in the coordination, monitoring and adjustment of treatments that include the use of medications. The psychiatrist will have strong public speaking skills and a desire to teach clinical trainees, educators and parents. The successful candidate will work collaboratively and effectively on shared cases with clinical colleagues.


Reporting to the Medical Director, this is an exempt, full-time position located in our San Mateo office.
