Prescribing Psychotropic Medications to Children and Adolescents (Pearls for Primary Care)


Primary care is the first stop for treating mental health conditions, but pediatricians and family physicians vary on how comfortable they are prescribing psychotropic medications to children and adolescents. Dr. Heide Hullsiek Rollings will help participants become more savvy in determining when to prescribe, what medications to use, and how to evaluate dosage and effectiveness.

A Mental Health Education Series for Primary Care Teams

Primary care teams and psychiatrists each share a piece of the puzzle in treating mental health disorders. The demand for mental health treatment in the primary care setting continues to grow, yet many primary care teams find treating mental health to be challenging and complicated.

The Pearls for Primary Care educational series covers topics to better equip primary care teams to identify and treat patients with mental health disorders. This series is intended for all members of the primary care team.
