NSA 11/01/17 NAPA Anxiety Disorders in Children and Adolescents

Napa, CA US
November 1, 2017

Speaker: Carol L. Ferro, MD Psychiatry Behavioral Health

Suicide recently rose to the second leading cause of death for adolescents. There is currently a national and local shortage of psychiatrists trained to treat children and adolescents who have anxiety disorders. Mental health difficulties typically present in the primary care clinic and primary care clinicians could benefit from further education, so that more children who need treatment could receive it from their primary care doctors. I am not aware of any tracking being done in primary care clinics regarding mental health symptoms or treatment in children and adolescents. 


Target Audience

Napa Primary care physicians and other interested clinicians

Learning Objectives

Recognize that more children are presenting with anxiety disorders and treatment could better come from primary care physicians.

Improve utilization of guidelines in treating anxiety disorders clinically.

Recommend referral to subspecialty  if needed.
