We are a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service , located across two sites in the National Capital Region of Delhi, India. We provide a range of holistic mental health care solutions for children and adolescents until the age of 25 years.

We are innovating and adapting continuously to the local needs and global trends of child and adolescent mental health. Therefore, our focus now includes working on prevention, awareness and empowering the community.We are increasingly involved in the wider community through our outreach programmes, and are trying to build capacity through our training courses.


We aim to provide ethical, reliable, supportive and effective mental health care that is evidence based, transparent and compassionate.

Clinical Services

Children First provides diagnostic services, standardised and clinical assessments, and therapeutic interventions for a variety of mental health conditions .We have a clinical team comprising of child & adolescent psychiatrists, clinical and counseling psychologists and family therapists.

Developmental Services

Children First provides screening, diagnosis and intervention for children with developmental delays or disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Global Developmental Delays, Dyspraxia, ADHD etc.


In order to address the existing training gaps in the field of child & adolescent mental health, we conduct regular training programs for professionals, parents and teachers.

Our trainings are hands-on, interactive and equip participants to use the skills learnt across diverse settings, including schools, NGOs, children’s homes and private practice.


We believe that all children and families deserve a safe, nurturing environment, irrespective of their background or ability to access a mental health service like ours.
