Teen Psychiatry Services:

Being a teenager in today’s society is difficult. As well as worrying about body image, exam results and dealing with peer pressure, teenagers now have the additional worry of how they are perceived online. A constant stream of images of perfect lives and perfect bodies on social media can lead to feelings of insecurity and inferiority. Teenagers may turn to unhelpful coping strategies to deal with these pressures such as using alcohol, drugs or self-harming. Psychiatric assessment and treatment can help to support teens going through difficult times. At The Edinburgh Practice, we are proud to have the only private Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrists in Scotland as members of our dedicated team of professionals.
