Out of control teens, school failure, family conflicts, drug abuse, violence, and suicide attempts can all be signs your son or daughter may need professional help. Like adults, adolescents can have mental health disorders that interfere with the way they feel, think, and act. When untreated, psychological problems can be very costly to families and communities. The causes for these issues can be both biological and environmental. Biological causes include genetics, chemical imbalances in the body or damage to the central nervous system such as a head injury. Whereas environmental causes can be exposure to toxins or violence, witnessing or being the victim of physical or sexual abuse, or stress related to chronic poverty or the loss of important people through death, divorce or broken relationships.
Does this sounds like you’re son or daughter? I can help.
