Advocating for the appropriate use of psychotropic drugs in children and adolescents
Magellan's updated monograph can enhance your services
In January 2022, Magellan completed an extensive review and update of its clinical monograph, Appropriate Use of Psychotropic Drugs in Children and Adolescents.
Addressing a critical issue in the children's mental health crisis
Increasing mental health challenges for young people, made worse by the pandemic, prompted the Surgeon General and leading children’s health organizations to issue declarations of a youth mental health crisis.
You’ll find our monograph highlights evidence-based research on the use of psychotherapeutic agents in children and principles for optimal children’s psychopharmacotherapy practice.
We encourage you to review the monograph summary (PDF), refer to psychotropic drug information at-a-glance (PDF), and consult the monograph (PDF) as you plan and enhance your services for children, youth and families.
