Because children are growing and changing physically and emotionally throughout childhood and adolescence, it can be difficult to know when professional help is needed for troublesome behaviors and emotions.
Generally, if your child’s issues make everyday activities difficult or impossible, it’s time to seek assistance. Almost half of all children’s mental health issues develop before age 14. Addressing your child’s mental health needs early can help him/her thrive at school, with friends, and within your family.
At Gerard Community Mental Health Services, we have more than 40 years of experience working with child and youth emotional and behavioral issues, and we have the tools and skills to assess and treat your child’s mental health needs.
