Northwestern Memorial Hospital
Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH) in Chicago is a great hospital. My family and I have gotten all of our medical needs at NMH for many years. Neither of us would trade Northwestern for any other hospital. We feel safe and well cared for with every visit, and get excellent feedback in a minimum timely matter. Their professionalism is honorable and we would recommend Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago to everyone, without a thought. For all medical needs, that is the place to be for excellent medical care. Pamyuce@yahoo.com

Akarama is a community center in the Woodlawn neighborhood where different venues can be given. My daughter recently had her reception there and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The center is clean and welll kept, and the price was very reasonable. I would like to give a shout out to all those on the staff who helped to contribute to make this a joyous occasion for my daughter and her new husband. God bless.

Tips & Advices
A child psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in issues that affect the mental and emotional health of children and teens. Child psychiatrists can provide treatment for children and teenagers who suffer from depression, autism, anxiety disorders, attention disorders, drug addictions, eating disorders, mood disorders, and a wide range of behavioral problems.
Psychiatrists typically ask questions that focus  on the issues that are having a negative effect on your life. In an initial visit with a psychiatrist, you may be asked about symptoms you've experienced, and ways in which you've tried to deal with them. You might be asked about current and past medical conditions, as well asa family health history.
A referral is an authorization from your doctor saying that a certain type of treatment is medically necessary, and it's usually required if you want your insurance company to cover the costs associated with a visit to a psychiatrist. If you don't have insurance, a referral is not required to schedule a psychiatrist visit.
Psychiatrists and psychologists sometimes collaborate, and this typically takes place when working with patients who have serious mental health problems. In cases like this, a psychologist will treat the patient from a behavioral perspective. A psychiatrist will complement this treatment with care that handles issues concerning biology, neurology, and the prescription of drugs.
Many psychiatrists specialize in treating certain conditions. Some psychiatrists focus on substance abuse therapy, and this is the treatment of addiction to substances like alcohol, narcotics, and tobacco. Others specialize in biological psychiatry, which is the treatment of brain chemistry disorders like depression and schizophrenia. Psychiatrists might also specialize in treating elderly patients or children and adolescents.
