Perhaps you worry that your child may be unusually struggling with sadness?
Are there times your child seems overly anxious?
Does it feel like your child never listens?
Do peer relationships seem to be an issue for your child?
Life as a caring parent isn’t always easy. You spend countless hours nurturing and developing your children for life's beautiful yet challenging journey. Then, one day, you notice your child is struggling, but you don't have the answers or coping mechanisms. Sometimes, even the strongest and most loving parents/caregivers among us need guidance and support when their children become distressed and afraid to move forward.
Every family runs into hurdles that appear insurmountable at some point. Whether it's watching your child struggle with anxiety, depression, peer relationships or any other mental health issues, you should know there is hope for a better future. You may hesitate to seek help and support because of the myths and stigmas our society places on mental health.
