As parents, our children’s health ranks among our top priorities. When fall arrives and flu season begins, we notice every cough and feel for signs of fever. But how attuned are we to mental health symptoms in our kids? When do we first notice that our child may be suffering emotionally or engaging in behavior that is out of the ordinary? How can we tell if our children may be struggling and could benefit from psychological help?
Today is Child Health Day - let’s make sure that this awareness extends to child mental health.
