Can any psychiatrist help my child ?

If your son or daughter needs to see a psychiatrist, make sure to specify their age. Not all mental health specialists see children or adolescents regularly, so you would want only psychiatrists who can certainly help to offer an appointment. Doctors will read your request and will only offer an appointment if they have experience with your child’s age, saving you time and money.

Will I get a prescription?

Yes, if needed, the doctor will give you a paper prescription that you can use to buy the medicines you need at any pharmacy. Most psychiatric medicines require an original prescription with the doctor’s stamp and signature, so make sure to get one from your doctor, if you plan on taking a medical treatment.

Can I get medication for ADHD?

ADHD medication in Italy cannot be prescribed by a psychiatrist as it is only available through centers specialized in ADHD management. If you need a refill for ADHD medication or wish to start a new treatment, you need to contact one of the specialized public centres available on this page of the National Institute of Health website.

Psychiatrist vs Therapist. What is the difference in Italy?

The main difference between a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist is that the psychiatrist can prescribe medications. Although psychiatrists and psychotherapists often treat the same conditions, their approach may be different. For severe cases which do not benefit sufficiently from psychotherapy, a psychiatrist is likely to be more helpful. If you are interested only in talking therapy, a psychotherapist is possibly a better fit.
