Adolescent Medicine

Adolescence is the second decade of life, starting just before the teenage years. During this stage of life, you may find you have complications that you did not have as a child. As your body and mind alter, you start to have new kinds of medical and emotional concerns. For this reason, it can be useful to speak with doctors and nurses about your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Adolescent medicine also known as hebiatrics. It is a medical subspecialty that is emphasized on care of patients who are in the adolescent phase of evolution, generally varying from the last years of elementary school until graduation from high school.

Adolescents are concerned with a broad diversity of issues, like Hyperactivity, Distractibility, low grades in school or avoiding school, Low self-esteem, depression and anxiety. These conditions often show up in adolescence, and can be very severe. Hence, Behavioral Health Programs help adolescents to deal with such conditions.
