Mental Disorders in Children
Detecting mental illness in children is difficult considering children and adolescents brains are still developing and they are still learning behaviors that will become normative, however once a mental disorder is detected there are many problems that can arise in a child’s life as a result of this illness. Some adolescents can have difficulty coping with daily life and changes to a routine as a result of their mental disorder. With medication and psychotherapy mental disorders are able to be controlled. Yet, there are still other issues that will arise. Children with mental disorders will need to learn skills and techniques to help them with their mental disorder for the rest of their lives and their parents and family will be needed to help and support them. Below you can read about a few of the many, many different mental disorders that affect children:
