Medication Management  for Children

Mental health disorders in children and adolescents is common – with the CDC suggesting one in six children between the ages of two and eight have a mental, developmental, or behavioral disorder. Pediatric psychiatry (or mental health medication management in children) can help provide children relief by working with the child and their parents to develop a medication based treatment plan.

Is your child having behavior difficulties at home or in school? Are they uncooperative or defiant? Medication management of these symptoms can help.


What might psychiatric care look like?

Psychiatric evaluations are individualized, so they vary. But, you can expect to work one-on-one with the psychiatric provider. You’ll probably start by giving background information and explaining the problem. Medical exams and testing (e.g., blood pressure, weight, height, genetic swabs) may be collected as well. 

Psychiatry and
Medication Management of
Symptoms
for Adults


One in four adults is diagnosed with a mental health condition. Sometimes symptoms can be managed by lifestyle changes alone – like changes in diet, exercise, and healthy sleep routines. Other times, we may need medication to help manage our symptoms.

Psychiatric providers are specially trained to treat mental health disorders (much like a cardiologist specializes in heart conditions). Depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, obsessive-compulsive disoders, sleep disorders, mood disorders, and personality disorders are common disorders that can benefit from medication management of symptoms.
