Children and Adolescents
The field of consultation-liaison child and adolescent psychiatry is an important and vital sub-subspecialty of both child and adolescent psychiatry and psychosomatic medicine. The leading causes of morbidity and mortality among young people [e.g., accidents, homicide, malignancies, and suicide among youth ages to 19 years of age (Hoyert et al., 2006)] suggest that there is much that psychiatrists can potentially contribute to general medical physicians striving to provide the best possible preventive and treatment-oriented care to children and adolescents.
