Dr. Angela H. Brantley - Child Psychiatrist
We all know that our children are our greatest asset. Choosing a medication for your child is a complex and difficult decision. I understand the ambivalence associated with this delicate step for some. I have vast experience managing ADHD and behavioral problems in children along with Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder and OCD in the both the pediatric and adult populations.
Education about mental illness and discussing treatment options are important for adults, but especially critical in the pediatric population. Communication with therapists for you or your child, with the educators in school, and those in the community who interact with your child are all important aspects of treatment. Parenting and behavioral strategies are also focus.
