What is child mental health?

Child mental health ensures that your child is reaching emotional and developmental milestones as they grow. The child mental health services available at Lewis Family Psychiatry also support the development of their social skills and ability to manage conflicts effectively.

The team helps your child have a positive quality of life at home, school, and social situations. They can also address a range of emotional, mental, and behavioral challenges that affect young children, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Depression
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Mood and thought disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The team can also address family and other relationship conflicts and trauma-related issues that affect your child’s mental and emotional wellness.

When should I schedule a child mental health consultation?

You should schedule a child mental health consultation at Lewis Family Psychiatry if you have a child aged 4 and up struggling with mental, emotional, or behavioral issues.

You should also schedule a consultation if your child is having difficulties making friends, managing anger, or struggling in school or social situations.

Through an online telemedicine platform, you and your child meet with the provider on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. The provider reviews your child’s health history and their symptoms to provide you with a diagnosis.

They also customize a treatment plan to better manage your child’s symptoms, improve their behaviors, and ensure they reach important developmental milestones. If your child needs medications, the provider can order genetic testing to identify which medications may work best.

What are the benefits of child mental health services?

Providing your child with the care they need to manage mental, emotional, or developmental health from a young age can lower their risk for more serious complications later in life.

High-quality child mental health services also give your child the support they need to be successful at home, in school, and society. The Lewis Family Psychiatry team provides guidance for family members, teachers, and other caregivers in your child’s life, so everyone can be a supportive resource.
