Child and adolescent psychiatry is extremely effective in the assessment and treatment of a range of different emotional and developmental disorders. This form of psychiatry is especially successful for disorders such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorders and eating disorders. Psychiatry can use different treatments such as talking therapy or medications depending on the individual as well as the severity of the disorder. An initial meeting would take place to talk to young people and their families to gain an understanding of the difficulties they might have and to discuss a way forward that everyone is happy with.
