Frequently asked questions

What kind of treatment does Talkiatry provide for children and adolescents?

down caret

At Talkiatry, we specialize in psychiatry, meaning the diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions. Your psychiatrist will meet with you and your child virtually on a schedule you set together, develop a treatment plan tailored to your child’s specific needs and preferences, and adjust your child’s plan as they meet their goals.  

If your child’s treatment plan includes medication, your child’s psychiatrist will prescribe and manage it. If needed, your child’s psychiatrist can also refer them to a Talkiatry therapist for supplemental therapy.

How old does my child have to be to see a Talkiatry psychiatrist?
