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.
