No health without mental health
Children and Mental illness
Children can develop same mental health conditions as adults. Sometimes these conditions can present differently in children and adolescents as compared to adults.
Identifying the Early Signs
Signs that your child might have a mental health condition include:
- Changes in school performance
- Excessive worry or anxiety, for instance fighting to avoid going to bed or school
- Hyperactive behaviour
- Frequent nightmares
- Difficulty concentrating
- Frequent disobedience or aggression
- Unexplained weight loss
- Frequent temper tantrums
- Physical harm
- Physical symptoms like headaches and stomachaches
Knowing early signs can help you understand if you need to speak to a professional. Don’t be afraid to reach out if you or someone you know needs help. Learning about mental health is the first step. Contact us to find out what services and supports are available for you.
Clinical services consist of a comprehensive evaluation of social, emotional, behavioural and academic skills with an objective to devise a customised and goal oriented program to help the child develop his/her skills.
Public Health Services
As a part of our goal to create mental health awareness, we undertake mental health literacy surveys, conduct various workshops in the domain of mental health and general well-being, work with the schools to promote an environment to optimise social-emotional learning for the students and support the parents and teachers in the process.
