Hal Benjamin Kronsberg

A former public school teacher, Dr. Kronsberg's clinical, educational, and research interests focus on providing mental health care outside of the traditional clinic setting.  He serves as a psychiatrist for Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center's School-based Mental Health Program in numerous Baltimore City public schools and the Child Mobile Treatment team.  He also serves on the Maryland Behavioral Health Integration in Pediatric Primary Care's Project ECHO, which aims to educate pediatricians across Maryland on topics and practices relating to child and adolescent mental health.

As a medical educator, Dr. Kronsberg is interested in the connection between clinical care and the social determinants of mental health and psychodynamic psychiatry.  He was the inaugural scholar for Johns Hopkins Bayview's Psychiatry Academy of Clinician Educators, was an AACAP awardee for the Psychodynamic Faculty Training Mentorship Initiative, and was recognized by the child and adolescent psychiatry trainees in 2019 for excellence in clinical teaching.  In 2021, he was named the Program Director for the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
