Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

About Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

In recent years the role of psychiatry in addressing psychological health issues in childhood and adolescence has greatly increased. Behavioral, developmental, and mental disorders affect between 7 and 12 million American youth but effective recognition and management strategies have become increasingly well-characterized. Children and adolescents are distinct patient populations with unique psychiatric health concerns warranting special attention from the psychiatric community.
