"As a pediatric nurse for 15 years I am in a unique position to see the child in a biopsychosocial perspective. The major question in mental health in children is how is this problem affecting social, emotional and physical development? Are medications always the answer, of course not, but when the child/adolescent is having a problem that affects ability to function in a developmentally appropriate manner, intervention becomes necessary. This can be in the form of medication and/or therapy. Another important note, in working with children/adolescents, one must also include the parents in treatment."
