Information for Adolescent Members and Family Members

Children grow and change rapidly during their development years, so diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders (emotional and behavioral disturbances) must be viewed with these changes in mind. Some problems are short-lived and don't need treatment. Others are persistent and very serious, and parents should seek professional help for their children. Diagnosing a child with a specific mental illness requires time, observation and feedback from parents and/or individuals who spend time with the child.
