When should my child or teen get help?

Child and adolescent mental health treatment is not one-size-fits-all, but many of the signs and symptoms of adolescent and children’s mental health issues are the same and identifiable.

Some signs and symptoms of mental health issues in children and adolescents include:

  • Social withdrawal
  • Frequent or excessive worrying
  • Lack of interest in activities that they previously enjoyed
  • Changes in personality
  • Academic issues
  • Acting out
  • Suicidal thoughts

Some common types of mental health conditions in teens and children may include:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Personality disorders

Why should I choose outpatient treatment for my child or teen?

Don’t wait to get your loved one the outpatient behavioral health services they need — the research shows that every day counts.

Studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that getting your loved one help from mental health professionals and evidence-based treatment services early can make a positive impact on the rest of their lives.

Pair that with research from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) that shows that nearly 50% of people with mental health issues began showing signs before the age of 14 and nearly 75% of people by the age of 24, and the need for early identification and early treatment of children and adolescent mental health issues becomes clear.

Choosing a mental health program for children and teens can be a tough, difficult decision, but it is the right decision for their future.
