Mental health disorders like anxiety and depression are not just “adult problems.” Kids also struggle with their thoughts and feelings, which can feel even more overwhelming in a body and mind that is still developing. Feelings of fear, sadness, or anger can feel especially confusing for kids who are still building self-awareness, language skills, and more.
People of all ages deserve to be cared for and supported. If you suspect that you or a loved one is struggling with emotional well-being, know that you are not alone – and there are many ways to seek support. Reaching out is a critical step in getting help and healing you or a loved one deserves.
