Why Children Mental Health Services Are Important For Your Child
Mental health and emotional health are essential parts of a child’s overall health—it is a complex interactive relationship between mental health, emotional, and physical health, along with their ability to succeed in school, at work and in society. Children’s mental health affects how he or she thinks, feels and acts on the inside and outside.
The management of your child’s mental and physical health includes the following:
• Behavioral problems
• Other mood disorders
• Genetic disorders
• Metabolic disorders
Services for children’s mental and physical health covers all systems in children up to the age of 21years old.
It is estimated that approximately 15 million of our nation’s children can currently be diagnosed with a mental health disorder. Even more so, many are at risk of developing a disorder due to risk factors in their biology or genetics—within their families, schools and communities.
