Child, Adolescent Psychiatrist Joins Berkshire Health Systems

PITTSFIELD — At a time when there is a severe deficit of mental-health providers specializing in the care of children and adolescents, Berkshire Health Systems announced the appointment of Dr. Fadi Halabi, a board-certified and fellowship-trained psychiatrist specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry, to the medical staff of Berkshire Medical Center. Halabi joins the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at BMC.

“Berkshire Health Systems is very pleased that Dr. Halabi has joined our exceptional team of psychiatric care providers,” said Dr. Liliana Markovic, chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health. “There is a national shortage of behavioral-health practitioners specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry at a time of great need for such services. Dr. Halabi’s expertise will help us to enhance care for this vulnerable population.”

Halabi received his medical degree from American University of Beirut in Lebanon and completed his residency in general psychiatry at Washington University/Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. He is board-certified in general psychiatry and fellowship-trained in child and adolescent psychiatry from Washington University/St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
