If your child has an emotional or behavioral health issue, or you are worried about your child’s mental health, there is help and hope.

Some symptoms of mental illness in children and adolescents include defiant or disruptive behaviors, anger, hyperactivity, anxiety, depression, withdrawal, immaturity, inability to cope, learning difficulties, inability to build and maintain relationships, and even hallucinations. These issues may cause problems at home, at school, with family members and with friends.

It can be beneficial to seek treatment for your child if he or she is displaying any symptoms of a mental disorder. Without treatment, the disorder could continue into adulthood and lead to problems in all areas of life. It could also put your child at risk for future substance abuse, violent or self-destructive behavior, even suicide.

Do not be afraid to seek help. Your child is not “nuts” or “crazy”. Your child has an illness and that illness can be treated. It is nothing to be ashamed of, nothing to hide. In fact, once you recognize and begin to deal with it, you will feel better, your child will be happier, and your family life will be more peaceful.

The hardest part is reaching out and accepting help. Once you take that first step, you will be amazed by all the people and organizations who are willing to help, and the resources and tools that are available.

There are ways to pay for the services you need, from AHCCCS, to Medicare and private insurance. There are people who will help you figure that out, too.
