Annmarie Caracansi | Publications

As a medical student, I was moved by the mental health needs of children and adolescents, and since then I have devoted myself to their care, especially those with co-occurring medical and psychosocial stressors. I believe that psychiatric practice is a collaborative venture involving medical professionals with other specialties, psychologists, nurses, social workers, therapists, and others.
