MAY IS MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH
Today’s questions related to mental health in children.
“What should I look for in my child as an indicator of mental health issues?”
Today’s question is simple. The answer certainly is not. Be aware of changes in your child’s emotional, behavioral, and/or mental functioning. Remember that children often express sadness and feelings of depression in the form of anger, through outbursts, tantrums, etc. If the symptoms persist for more than a month, seek evaluation from your child’s doctor or a mental health professional. Sooner is better than later.
