I’m Going to See a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist: Now What?

These comics are a hypothetical depiction of a first visit to a child and adolescent psychiatrist and represent just some of things a young patient may experience. The intent of the comics is not only to educate, but to let children and adolescents know that there is nothing wrong with seeing a psychiatrist or getting help.

The comics were created in 2017-2018 through a collaboration between child and adolescent psychiatrists and AACAP’s Youth Connection (AYC), a group of youth with lived mental health experience. Print them out and place in waiting rooms so that young patients can read them as they wait for their appointment.
