According to research, mental health problems affect around one in six children. They include depression, anxiety, and conduct disorder. These are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives. Here at Homestead Mental Health Services, a trusted provider of mental health services in Baltimore, Maryland, we are here for children’s mental health too.
Adult and children mental health are just as important as physical health. Good mental health helps your kids develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults. We aim for children to help keep their minds healthy.
Some changes can act as triggers for children, such as moving home, changing school, or the birth of a new sibling. Some children who start school feel excited about making new friends and doing new activities, but there may also be some who feel anxious. Know that our counseling can help them.
Our outpatient mental health clinic sees that it is important that children going through some changes that is difficult for them have the right support and professional help before their situation could progress.
