BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

    Medication

    PM Behavioral Health provides medication evaluations and medication management when needed.

    We do this with our experienced psychopharmacology team which consists of both pediatricians with pharmacology training as well as child & adolescent psychiatrists.

    Medication management is incorporated within our Behavioral Health program or can be in conjunction with your pediatrician, other mental health professionals or community therapists.

    Our team will create an individualized plan for you/your child's needs. We work collaboratively to coordinate care among schools, therapists, and pediatricians.

    Medication management for mild-moderate conditions can be prescribed by an experienced pediatrician who has additional training in psycho-pharmacologic management. These conditions include mild-moderate depression and anxiety, OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and others.

    Medication management for all conditions including more severe and chronic conditions can be prescribed by an experienced child and adolescent psychiatrist. These conditions include moderate to severe depression and anxiety, suicidal ideation, and more complex psychiatric disorders often requiring multiple medications. These services are available in NY and FL.

    We do everything we can to keep pricing reasonable and affordable.
