What is Child and Adolescent Psychiatry?
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, generally refers to the treatment of psychiatric illness and the management of learning vulnerabilities, by a mental health provider with additional training serving this population.
Why would you recommend a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, as opposed to a General Psychiatrist, if they also trained in mental health evaluations and treatment?
The presenting symptoms of a mood, anxiety or a learning disorder in a child, are often quite different, than the symptoms that an individual may present with in adulthood. For example, irritability or behavioral disturbances are commonly associated with the onset of depression in childhood, while sadness tends to be the initial complaint for adults. Having a provider with specialized training in child and adolescent psychiatry, may increase the likelihood of obtaining an accurate diagnosis and the best treatment plan.
