Children’s mental health problems are real, common and treatable. Stress in children can disrupt a child’s functioning at home, school and in the community.
We have a team of mental health professional specially trained to assess, diagnose and treat children and adolescents with behavioral health concerns. Our team consists of child psychiatrists, therapists and social workers who will work with your child toward wellness and resilency.
Parents and family members are usually the first to notice if a child has problems with emotions or behavior. Your observations, along with those of teachers and other caregivers, can help determine whether you need to seek help for your child.
The following signs may indicate the need for professional help:
- Decline in school performance
- Poor grades despite strong efforts
- Constant worry or anxiety
- Repeated refusal to go to school or to take part in normal activities
- Hyperactivity or fidgeting
- Persistent nightmares
- Persistent disobedience or aggression
- Frequent temper tantrums
- Depression, sadness or irritability
