Medication Clinic

Child & Adolescent Care Clinic Triage Form

Board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists are available to prescribe and monitor ongoing psychiatric medications. Through our teaching clinic, child and adolescent psychiatry fellows also offer medication management, supervised by attending child and adolescent psychiatrists. Treatment in our medication clinic requires an initial diagnostic evaluation and at least monthly participation with a mental health clinician (clinical social worker, licensed professional counselor, licensed marriage and family therapist, advanced practice registered nurse, or psychologist). Individual therapy and family therapy may also be available with one of our child and adolescent psychiatry fellows, under the supervision of an attending psychiatrist or another mental health clinician.

Referrals are made to the clinic using our triage form. For more information contact the clinic at 860.545.7239.
