Children and Mental Health — The Growing Challenge
A child’s life can be a never-ending array of ups and downs and heartbreak. While these life phases are inevitable and accepted as a normal part of growing up, there are instances when shifts in mood and behavior may be indicators of a larger, more daunting issue: mental illness.
As adults, it may be difficult to imagine children suffering from such difficult challenges, yet the number of young people today experiencing mental health problems is on the rise.
