How to Get Help for My Child
Like adults, children can experience environmental stress in school, the community and at home (e.g. Divorce, death of a loved one, community violence, school or home transitions, bullying, etc.). These stressors can often lead to changes in your child’s mood and/or behavior. Without healthy coping skills, the emotions caused by stressors children are facing can result in challenges at school and in the home.
