Getting Teens the Help They Need

Professional Psychiatry Services You Can Count On

Adolescent psychiatrists are licensed medical professionals who specialize in the mental health and emotional wellness of teenagers. They work with their patients to identify mental and emotional issues that may arise during the teenage years, and help them find practical approaches towards managing them. At P.S. Psychiatry, our adolescent psychiatrists are trained to diagnose, treat, and provide preventative care for any mental or emotional disturbance that might affect the development of a teen. Our professionals can help identify issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and psychotic disorders that could be affecting your teen’s life. While our psychiatrists may provide medication in some cases to manage underlying conditions, they may also recommend counseling services to empower teenagers to make good decisions for their long term wellbeing.
