Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Skin Care & Hair Care
How do I Know When to Worry About My Child’s Mental Health?
As the person who cares for your child, you usually know your child better than anyone else. As your child develops and grows, they may have problems from time to time. If your child is acting unusual or seems to have a lot of distress for a long period of time, it may be time to get help. Other times to worry are when your child is showing highly unusual behavior that is causing them or others harm.
Who do I Turn to for Help?
It is sometimes hard to know whom to turn to when your child has mental health concerns. A good place to start is your child’s doctor or pediatrician. You can talk to your child’s doctor about your worries and they can help you understand whether these concerns are a normal part of your child’s growth, or whether they need help.
Who Does a Child, Adolescent Psychiatrist Treat?
Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists are physicians who specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating children and adolescents with psychiatric disorders which cause problems with feeling, thinking, and behavior. They are specially trained and qualified to treat infants, children, adolescents, and adults as individuals, couples, families, and groups. Because a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist has training in both adult and child psychiatry, and because their additional training provides them a unique perspective to understand the role childhood experiences play in adulthood, many adults will seek treatment from a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist.
What is the Transitional Age Period and Why Does it Matter?
Not all clinicians and researchers agree about when the transitional age period starts and ends. For this document, the transitional age period is defined as spanning the age range of 16 through 25 years old. This period is increasingly recognized as being a distinct developmental period characterized by progressive independence and the establishment of careers, families, and core values. The degree of independence from parents and establishment of adult roles varies widely within this group.
