Recognize Mental Health Problems In Your Child.
Mental health problems in children are common, real, and treatable. Without treatment there is an increased risk in behavioral problems at school, decline in grades, suicide, trouble with the criminal justice system, and more. With the help of teachers and other caregivers, parents can identify these problems early on and can determine whether or not help should be sought out for the child.

Decline in school performance
Poor grades in spite of strong efforts
Constantly worried or feeling anxious
Repeated refusal to go to school or to take part in normal activities
Hyperactivity or fidgeting
Persistent disobedience or aggression
Frequent temper tantrums
Depression, sadness or irritability
