There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
A child psychiatrist or other mental health professional typically diagnoses persistent depressive disorder after conducting a thorough psychiatric evaluation. Such an evaluation will involve an interview with the child and with the family. Many times the child’s school will be consulted to provide additional information.
If your child’s healthcare provider diagnoses your child with persistent depressive disorder, treatment options will be presented to you, including the potential risks and benefits of possible treatments. Taking into consideration your opinions and preferences, your healthcare provider will work with you and your child to create the most appropriate treatment plan.
