Children and Mental Health

For parents/ guardians, the key to successfully handling mental disorders in children is to recognize the problem and seek the appropriate and necessary treatment.

1) Conduct Disorder.  Children with a conduct disorder have behavior that shows a strong disregard for the rules of society and life in general. Conduct disorders are often one of the most frequently seen mental disorders in children.

2) Get Help.  Do not be afraid to ask for help getting help, as the appropriate treatment for conduct disorders is essential. Treatments are aimed at helping and guiding young children in order for them to realize and understand the effects their behavior has on others.

There are other mental illnesses that children can get and that can cause problems at school, home, in public, and at work when they are older.  Some of those are Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, Autism, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and others.  There is help for you, keep trying to get your child the help they need.  It is difficult and you may feel alone, but remember there are others dealing with the same issues you are.
