Early intervention is vital
A child’s mental wellbeing is as important as their physical health. Often young people suffering from mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety, don’t get the expert help required soon enough, whilst it can be difficult for a parent or carer to identify when a child’s behaviour is related to a mental health condition. Early intervention is vital in reducing the likelihood of a condition developing into something more serious.
Young people face many pressures in modern life. Bullying, exam stress, peer pressure, social media burdens and family breakdown are common place. As a result, they may secretly struggle emotionally, engaging in unhealthy behaviours as a result.
You don’t have to cope alone, common mental health conditions treated at the Priory Wellbeing Centre Southampton include:
- Anxiety disorders
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Eating disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Self harm
- Sleep problems
- Substance abuse and addictions
How Priory can help
Priory offers fast access to affordable treatment, enabling a young person to get back on track as quickly as possible. If you feel your child is struggling emotionally, an initial assessment is worthwhile.
Children and teenagers find discussing issues with a clinician easier than discussing with a parent. They can give clarity as to whether there is a mental illness and provide support to the young person and their family. The clinician can treat or prevent mental illness, advising how to manage risks the young person poses themself, or that others pose to them.
