What is Mental Health?

Mental health is part of the human experience.

And, much like physical health, it needs to be maintained. Mental Health counseling works to instill coping techniques used to manage:

Anxiety-Excessive worrying that may impact a child’s ability to participate in certain activities.

Depression-May included low mood, tearfulness, loss of interest in activities and/or relationships.

Grief-Following the loss of loved ones (pets included) or to help prepare children for anticipated losses.

Low Self-Esteem-Includes a lack of confidence, feeling down on themselves, and excessively comparing themselves to others.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder-Can present itself as an inability to focus, impulsiveness, or hyperactivity.

Traumatic Events-Events that pose a direct threat to a child’s safety. This may include instances where children have directly experienced treats to their physical or emotional wellbeing, as well as witnessing traumatic events.
