Children and adolescents may face a variety of mental health challenges that can benefit from professional evaluation and care. Our child psychiatry service can help if you're noticing changes in your child's behavior, emotions, or development that concern you. Common reasons to seek a check-up include:

  • Behavioral Changes: If your child is exhibiting increased aggression, defiance, or a sudden shift in personality, it might be a sign that something's amiss.
  • Emotional Disturbances: Symptoms like persistent sadness, anxiety, irritability, or mood swings can indicate deeper emotional or psychological issues.
  • Social Withdrawal: A noticeable decline in social interactions, loss of interest in activities, or difficulty making friends can suggest the need for professional support.
  • Academic Decline: If your child is struggling with schoolwork, has trouble focusing, or exhibits learning difficulties, it may be worth seeking an evaluation.
  • Sleep or Eating Problems: Irregular sleep patterns, insomnia, changes in appetite, or eating disorders are also common reasons for parents to consult a child psychiatrist.

Our team of experts is here to help identify the underlying causes and work with you to create a treatment plan that best supports your child's growth and development.
