Overview

Helping Kids Throughout the Community

At Floating Hospital for Children, we believe that it is our responsibility to not only help those that come to our center to seek out care, but to help those in need within our community. The skilled clinicians in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry are committed to helping children and teens with emotional and behavioral issues throughout the Greater Boston community as well.

Through our Consultative Services, we provide agencies, schools and residential centers with expert insight into the care and treatment of these disorders. We believe in a holistic approach to emotional and behavioral disorders that looks at all aspects of a young person’s mental health, including psychological and social, not just biological. Our goal is to help keep children and adolescents well mentally and emotionally, with therapy that takes all of their needs into account.

Specialized Insight from a Top Expert

As the Senior Psychiatric Consultant at Walker, a Needham, Massachusetts-based multiservice agency that works with children experiencing severe emotional and behavior disorders, Dr. Bellonci brings the exceptional care you’ve come to expect from Tufts Medical Center to the community.
