Mental Health and Children

Children Mental Health Issues
American Pscyhological Association

It’s easy for a parent to tell when a child has a fever or stomach ache, but a mental health problem may be much harder to detect. Millions of children in the United States suffer from depression, anxiety, ADHD or a host of other mental health issues, but many go undiagnosed or properly treated.
