Mental Health


Finding The Help You Need

Knowing when to seek treatment for mental health disorders is important for parents and families. Many times, families, spouses, or friends are the first to suspect that their loved one is challenged by feelings, behaviors, and/or environmental conditions that cause them to act disruptive, rebellious, or sad.

This may include, but is not limited to, problems with relationships, friends and/or family members, work, school, sleeping, eating, substance abuse, emotional expression, development, coping, attentiveness, and responsiveness.

It is important for families who suspect a problem in one, or more, of these areas to seek treatment as soon as possible. Click here to learn more.
