Does your child need help?

Young people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, or trauma often display troublesome and risky behaviors that can be challenging for parents to manage on their own. Here are some situations in which you should seek support from mental health professionals: 

  • The child or teen is engaging in self-harm or causing harm to others, displaying generalized unhappiness, feeling unlike, or not having friends.

  • The young person is often disrespectful at home and/or school.

  • The teenager’s behavior is challenging, and your efforts to manage or discipline is not working.

  • The young person has been through a traumatic event such as physical or sexual abuse, neglect, or has been exposed to divorce, substance abuse, violence, or mental illness.
