What is child and adolescent mental health?

Child and adolescent mental health is one of the services available at Prime Psychiatry. Our skilled team provides mental health services for children starting at age 11. 

Many adults struggling with a mental health condition may have had symptoms during childhood or adolescence. Diagnosing and treating mental health conditions early may prevent severe symptoms later in life, improving overall outcomes.

How do I know if my child or teen needs mental health services?

Many parents have a hard time recognizing the signs and symptoms of a mental health condition in their children. 

You may want to consider scheduling a consultation with Prime Psychiatry if your child or teen:

  • Appears irritable most of the time 
  • Frequently expresses their fears or worries
  • Complains of aches and pains from unknown physical causes
  • Sleeps more or less than usual
  • Struggles in school
  • Withdraws from friends or family
  • Has a hard time socializing
  • Has low energy
  • Has a change in appetite

Though these symptoms may be signs of many health issues, if you have concerns about your child or teen’s mental, emotional, or cognitive well-being, the Prime Psychiatry team can help.

What are the child and adolescent mental health services?

At Prime Psychiatry, our team takes an individualized approach to child and adolescent mental health. Before making any recommendations, our team conducts a psychiatric evaluation. 

During the assessment, your child’s provider performs psychological tests, gauging mental, emotional, and cognitive health. We also review your child’s symptoms, medical history, and family history. 

The psychiatric evaluation helps determine a diagnosis, which our team uses to direct treatment. Child and adolescent mental health treatment may include individual counseling and family counseling, and in some instances, your provider might recommend medication management.
