Youth Treatment

Helping Children and Adolescents

The early detection of mental disorders in children can be very difficult since the signs are not always easy to identify. However, if they are spotted and properly treated, children with mental disorders can enjoy improved emotional health and well-being throughout their entire adolescence.

At Mend Psychiatry, we can help you know when something is a warning sign, work with your child to diagnose it, and provide a personalized treatment plan to help. If you would like advice or guidance on how to identify if your child may be showing early signs of mental health conditions, contact us to get answers and instructions on how to best handle your child’s situation. 

Common Questions and Concerns

Mental health in children can be difficult to understand because normal child development involves change. Additionally, the symptoms of a disorder may differ depending on a child's age, and children may not be able to understand or articulate how they feel or why they are behaving a certain way. Some of the most recurring questions and concerns we receive from parents are:

  • What are some of the most common mental health disorders in children?
  • What are some of the warning signs that my child may have a mental health disorder?
  • What should I do if I suspect my child has a mental health condition?
  • How do health care professionals diagnose mental illness in children?
  • How is mental illness in children treated?
  • How can I help my child cope with mental illness?

All of these are the most common questions parents share, but any question is valid, and we understand that no child is the same, and they all experience mental illness differently. At Mend Psychiatry, we welcome all of the concerns you may have and encourage you to reach out to us for any answers we may be able to help you with.

It’s important not to attempt a self-diagnosis of any specific mental health conditions, but rather to take notice and be aware of triggers, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that feel unhealthy or disrupt your everyday life. We are often hyper-aware of conditions related to flaws in our physical health, but mental health is equally important. Determining whether or not to see a psychiatrist often requires a candid self-assessment of your symptoms and day-to-day experiences. To even make this amount of individual progress is a significant step in the right direction toward achieving quality mental health. If you are experiencing the symptoms of mental health conditions it is essential to seek help and guidance in treating them.
