The Forum is staffed by credentialed psychiatrists who specialize in treatment for teenagers. With years of experience in teen mental and behavioral health, our clinicians provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and diagnostic services for teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17.
Prescriptions Tailored to Your Teen's needs
The main reason that teenagers are prescribed medication is to improve their physical and mental health. However, if they are taking a wide variety of medicines, or if they aren’t complying with their physician’s instructions, they can quickly begin to experience negative side effects. According to research, this non-adherence can drastically impact one’s well-being. That’s why we began offering medication management services.
Our expert clinicians will analyze the full list of medications prescribed to your child. We will then identify which psychiatric medications will be most effective for your teenager. This is a delicate process requiring years of experience; luckily, the staff at The Forum specialize in helping teens to achieve positive outcomes through medication management.
Psychiatry for Teens
Some people hesitate to seek medications for their teenagers, while others feel as though they’ve tried everything – with poor results. These parents may have had a negative experience in which their child was over-medicated and became “like a zombie.” They might have paid for costly medications that didn’t seem to help at all. This is why it’s important to seek teen-specific treatment.
While trials and errors are normal parts of the process, it can be frustrating to feel like your clinician doesn’t understand your teen’s needs. The Forum is different. We only work with teenagers – all of our patients are between the ages of 13 and 18. Our team members understand how to find the perfect dosage and prescription to help your child’s hyperactivity, depression, anxiety, and more. Experience the difference for yourself by calling us today.
The Right Combination of Therapy & Medication.
A Blended, Effective Approach
The Forum combines psychopharmacology with one-on-one, family, and group therapy sessions. Research shows that when teenagers receive counseling in conjunction with prescription medications, they achieve better, long-lasting outcomes.
