What Is Child Psychiatry?

Many of the mental health problems we experience as adults can be traced to our experiences during childhood. In fact, disorders like anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other mental and behavioral issues often start to manifest at a young age and may grow over time if left undiagnosed and untreated. At Fresh Start Behavioral Health, Inc., we specialize in working with patients of all ages to identify and treat mental health challenges. If your child is showing signs of mental, emotional, or behavioral issues, rely on the expertise of our skilled team to help manage their moods and symptoms. Schedule a psychiatric evaluation for your child at our facility in Dayton, West Carrollton, or Cincinnati, OH.

What Can I Expect During My Child's Counseling Program?

Before moving forward with a treatment plan, our certified counselors will meet with your child to perform a psychiatric evaluation and diagnosis. During this initial appointment, we'll talk with them about their feelings and behaviors, as well as what factors might be behind them. You can rest assured that we will do everything we can to make your child feel safe and welcome during their time with us. Using the information from our first session, we can build a personalized treatment plan for your child, which may involve ongoing counseling sessions, behavioral therapy, or prescription medication to address any chemical imbalances in the brain. At every step, we will work with you to keep you informed about your child's progress.

Care You Can Trust

Our early years are a formative and often stressful time as we manage school, socializing, and changes in our own bodies and brains. Because of all these factors, it can be difficult to recognize mental health problems as they begin to develop. If you've noticed changes in your child's behavior, including restlessness, disinterest in their hobbies, frequent emotional outbursts, or anxiety, it's important to bring them in for a psychiatric assessment before those issues grow larger. The team at Fresh Start Behavioral Health, Inc. has the training and compassion to help you and your family move forward. To schedule an appointment for your child, reach out to our mental health office in, West Carrollton, Cincinnati, or Dayton, OH today.
