Child psychiatrists have dedicated years of their life to specialise in the unique study, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of psychopathological disorders in children and adolescents. In the first 18 years of an individual’s development, they undergo exceptional physiological and hormonal changes at a rate that does not typically occur elsewhere in their life. Add to that the external challenges, incidents, and abuses which may occur in that individual’s childhood, and it is unsurprising that in relation to mental health, the specific expertise and clinical practice of a child psychiatrist is essential to the support and treatment plan of the vulnerable individual.
Due to their full medical training prior to specialising in children’s mental health, a child psychiatrist can diagnose cognitive problems, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, depression and related disorders, bipolar disorder and any of the other 200 classified forms of mental illness.
Child psychiatrists are also well-accustomed with cases involving trauma such as those brought about by child abuse, child custody, or child immigration. By performing in-depth assessments in a secure and sensitive manner, a child psychiatrist may discover the ways in which a mental illness has manifested and to what extent. A child psychiatry expert witness will write their findings into a comprehensive report which can be used by a solicitor in putting together their case.
Where a diagnosed or suspected mental illness has influenced criminal activity, a child psychiatry expert witness may perform their assessments and give expert opinion to the individual’s competency to proceed to trial, as well as provide information on the juvenile justice and recovery systems.
A child psychiatry expert witness is also able to offer an expert opinion in court which is both recognised and respected by the court.
