Answer by Admin: While comment section below will also answer this question I would like to add an update. The Child Psychiatrist in Lady Ridgway Hospital (LRH) now is  Dr. Sudarshi Senevirathna. You can go to LRH out patient department and arrange an appointment at the child psychiatry clinic.

Dr. Sudarshi Senevirathna is available on few days in private sector hospitals as well.

Dr. Rasika Perera is another eminent child psychiatrist. As I understand he is in Kandy. There have been newly trained child psychiatrist. One of them is in Anuradhapura hospital.

  1. We have very good child psychiatrist in Sri Lanka. Dr. Hemamali Perera is a child psychiatrist in Sri Lanka who is also a senior lecturer in Colombo medical faculty. Dr. Hemamali conducts Pediatric psychiatry clinic at Lady Ridgeway Hospital, in Boralla.

    The other psychiatrists also very competent to deal with pediatric psychiatric problems.
    They have also got the necessary training to treat children with mental illness. If you find it hard to consult Dr. Hemamali you can go to any government general hospital in Sri Lanka.

    Psychology and Psychiatry are two different areas. It is always better to consult a psychiatrist for evaluation.
