The pandemic has sparked increased need for pediatric mental, behavioral, and developmental care. In particular, the trauma that many children experienced due to the pandemic has harmed their mental health. For over 50 years, CPMC’s Kalmanovitz Child Development Center (KCDC) has provided world-class, comprehensive care for children in need of specialized therapies. It is the largest evaluation and treatment program serving infants, children, adolescents, and their families in Northern California, as well as the only multidisciplinary child development services center in San Francisco. 

To address the urgent need for mental health practitioners, the KCDC Child Psychology Post-Doctoral Program is expanding to increase its ability to provide services with a focus on trauma-informed care. And the long-standing KCDC Scholarship Fund helps overcome financial barriers so that no family is turned away based on their ability to pay. In 2021 alone, 369 children received care thanks to this assistance.
