The Young minds Clinic’ is run by trained child psychiatrists/psychologist for Children and Adolescents until the age of 18.
Many children and adolescents are troubled by emotional, behavioural and psychiatric problems. These can cause worry and distress to themselves and to parents/other family members looking after them.
We have a special child psychiatric assessment unit for the assessment of children and their families. The assessment process involves interviewing the family, interviewing the child alone, gathering other information and the formulation of the problem.
The aim is to identify the problem, understand the causes and advise about what may help. We may prescribe medicine in some cases and talking therapies & counselling of different sorts. Most of the work is done with children and their families through outpatient appointments. We also run support groups for parents regarding good parenting, dealing with tantrums and challenging behaviour.
