PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Health Systems welcomes Fadi Halabi, MD, a specialist in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, to the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at Berkshire Medical Center.
 
At a time when there is a severe nationwide deficit of mental health providers specializing in the care of children and adolescents, Dr. Halabi's expertise will be of great value to patients and families in our Berkshire community.
 
Dr. Halabi received his medical degree from the American University of Beirut in Lebanon. He completed his residency in General Psychiatry and a fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Washington University/Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis.
 
At BMC, Dr. Halabi diagnoses and treats a wide range of concerns in children and adolescents including:
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma-related disorders
  • ADHD
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Disruptive behaviors
He also provides psychiatric management to youth that require long-term treatment through the Brien Center.
 
Describing his approach to patient care, Dr. Halabi said, "I work in partnership with young people and their families to recognize the biological, psychological, and social factors contributing to their concerns.
 
"My approach to treatment planning is personalized and relies on early collaboration with families, schools, healthcare providers, and other systems involved in each child's care," he said.
 
In his free time, Dr. Halabi enjoys dancing, live music, and card games with friends. He enjoys trying new cuisines and improving his own cooking skills. He looks forward to exploring more of the beauty of the Berkshires.
