Child and Adolescent Mental Health

What is a child psychiatrist?

A child and adolescent psychiatrist cares for children with any mental health condition.

Common conditions include autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, depression, anxiety, substance misuse and eating disorders.

Our general paediatric team can assess, reassure you and treat your child for many of these concerns, but commonly refer for an opinion when needed.
