Child Psychiatrists


American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry  

The AACAP has a referral directory on their website.  They also provide background information on what a child psychiatrist does and where to find help.  You can search for a child and adolescent psychiatrist by state, city, last name, practice interests, and languages spoken.  Unfortunately, not all of the listed psychiatrists have detailed contact information beyond their name and city, so you will need to look this information up in the phone book or on the web.
