Child Psychiatry

Child Psychiatry

Child & adolescent psychiatry is a branch of psychiatry that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental disorders in children, adolescent and their families.

We at Mann Clinic do our best to help child communicate his/her issues freely and to help them identify their strengths with the help of family therapy.

An integrated approach may involve individual, group or family psychotherapy, medication and consultation with other physicians or professionals if required from schools, juvenile courts, social agencies or other community organizations. After all these inputs, the psychiatrist is prepared and expected to act as an advocate for the best interestof children and adolescents.

The psychiatrist uses the knowledge of biological, psychological, and social factors in working with patients. Initially, a comprehensive diagnostic examination is performed to evaluate the current problem with attention to its physical, genetic, developmental, emotional, cognitive, educational, family, peer, and social components.

The psychiatrist arrives at a diagnosis and diagnostic formulation which are shared with the patient and family. The psychiatrist then designs a treatment plan which considers all the components and discusses these recommendations with the child or adolescent and family.
