Psychiatric Medications for Children & Adolescents

Our clinicians are trained in assessing whether a child’s development is on path or if they need assistance.

Adding a medication to treat children’s mental health comes with careful planning, parental involvement, and frequent check-ins. At Washington Interventional Psychiatry, we work closely with parents and pediatricians to decide whether medications are necessary and, if so, what parents should expect with treatment. We also speak with the child and adolescent in a developmentally appropriate manner so that they have some independence in taking medication.

We are trained in providing the following medications if necessary:

  • Antidepressant medications
  • Antianxiety medications
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) medications
  • Mood stabilizer medications
  • Antipsychotic medications

Though these are all options, some individuals may also not need medications. At Washington Interventional Psychiatry, our approach is holistic, and the decision to utilize medication is a joint decision between our clinicians, parents, and children.
