Psychiatry (children and young people)

Psychiatry (children and young people)

Pikkujätti has doctors who specialise in the psychological problems of children and young people. Appointments can be made directly with the psychiatrist without a doctor’s referral. A specialist of some other medical field can also direct the family to seek further treatment with a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist meets with the family and the child, and when required, supplements the assessment with a psychologist’s examination and a more detailed family assessment.

After this, a treatment plan is drawn up together with the family. Often this period of 3 to 5 visits already helps the family move forward. Alternative treatments include family and individual therapy, which are sometimes combined with medication, if necessary.
