Children's Mental Health

Being a parent is hard, and so is being a kid. It can be difficult to know if your child has a serious problem. Everyday stresses can cause changes in your child's behavior. Warning signs that it might be a more serious problem include:

    • Problems in more than one setting (at school, at home, with peers)

    • Changes in appetite or sleep

    • Social withdrawal or fear of things he or she did not used to be not afraid of

    • Returning to behaviors more common in younger children, such as bed-wetting

    • Signs of being upset, such as sadness or tearfulness

    • Signs of self-destructive behavior, such as head-banging or suddenly getting hurt often

    • Repeated thoughts of death
