2018 Storybook Ball
This year’s Storybook Ball showcased MGHfC’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, which is dedicated to the behavioral, cognitive and emotional health of its patients and families. The Pediatric Behavioral Health team provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents with a full spectrum of behavioral or emotional difficulties in inpatient and outpatient settings.
Nearly 20 million children in the U.S. have a behavioral disorder – more than the number of children with cancer and diabetes combined. Youth afflicted with behavioral health issues are at a higher risk for academic failure, interpersonal difficulties and substance use disorders.
Led by Timothy Wilens, MD, the Pediatric Behavioral Health team conducts state-of-the-art research and training to equip current and future generations of mental health professionals with the tools to understand the causes, symptoms and genetic underpinnings of these disorders.

Storybook Ball Over the Years
The past generosity of Storybook Ball supporters has helped establish new programs and facilities, such as the Coordinated Care Clinic and the state-of-the-art Francis H. Burr Proton Beam Therapy Center, enhancing our ability to serve children with complex physical and emotional needs. Like most healthcare organizations across the country and within Boston, however, Massachusetts General Hospital is not immune to external challenges. In the face of economic adversity, MGHfC is preparing to pursue its mission of caring for those who need our care most by renewing our commitment to the wide range of existing pediatric programs for which this hospital is renowned.
