Psychosis in Children and Young Adults
Psychosis in the pediatric population is important to understand especially in the setting of widespread vaping and juuling of marijuana in adolescents and young adults, use and misuse of stimulants. In the pediatric primary care office, we are faced at times with agitated parents, called upon to discuss and assess potentially psychotic patients. Given the increasing level of primary care involvement to assess, triage and sometimes manage patients with these symptoms, it is imperative that we have systems in place and educate ourselves about this disorder that is a rare but emerging illness in the pediatric population.Patient cases will be presented with the intent of creating touchpoints of managing such patients.
