A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
- Child Psychiatry
A pediatric/adolescent psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional conditions in young children and adolescents.
These specialists study psychopathological disorders and their causes in order to prevent and identify them in their patients. These disorders may be caused by biological, psychosocial, genetic, demographic, or environmental factors, a patient's history, or any combination of these factors.
Pediatric/adolescent psychiatrists treat patients through a variety of interventions including medical treatment, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, problem solving techniques, family therapy, parent training, psychodynamic therapy, and consultation with the patient's primary care physician or school professionals.

I am shocked at the previous review! Dr. Blanchet is actually one of those rare doctors who take the time to TAlK to you and explain the risks and benefits of the medicine. I have been seeing her for several months, and she has been very careful inasking for side effects and whether the medicine is helping my daughter. Almost as importantly, she takes the time to ask questions about stuff she likes doing and listens. I really don't understand how she could have gotten a bad review. I have talked to other parents in the waiting room and they only had positive things to say about her. Weird...
She made a fast and innacurate diagnosis, spent just a few minutes with my daughter and was pushy! She really insisted we start her on heavy and dangerous psychiatric medication, without even explaining side effects. I had to call the pharmacy about the drug she sent us home with and found out that it may cause my daughter to kill herself!I had a better experience with my family doctor who actually took the time to talk to me, my daughter and explain his treatment plan.
