Medication Management for Children & Adolescents
At Uptown Psych, we strive to offer complete mental health care to treat the entire person and work toward positive change.
At times, in addition to therapy, prescribing medication can reduce symptoms and prevent relapse of unwanted symptoms and anxiety and depression. Empirical based research shows that for acute anxiety and depression, therapy plus medication equal the most effective results.
Uptown Pych has experienced and skilled nurse practitioners who assess, diagnose and treat children and adolescence with psychiatric disorders or the potential for such disorders using their full scope of therapeutic skills, including prescribing medications. We are committed to coordinated care and will work with you and your child’s therapist to help your child through their journey as a team to help them achieve their goal of reduced symptoms and improved quality of life.
