Is Your Child or Teen Struggling With Anxiety, Stress, or Depression?

Does These Sound Familiar? Symptoms Can Include:

  • Scary memories, thoughts or nightmares

  • Appear to feel emotionally numb or disconnected
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Increased difficulties with focus and attention
  • Expressing negative or self-destructive thoughts
  • Eating significantly more or less than usual
  • Decreased interest in their favourite activities
  • Headaches, tummy aches or other physical issues
  • ‘Acting out’ or disruptive behaviours at home or school

If you answered YES, it’s time to seek help

In any given year, 1 out of 5 kids will experience a significant mental health issue that impacts their daily lives and those of their family members. Children can develop the same mental health conditions as adults. However, the presenting symptoms are different because the brain of a child is not fully developed.

As a result, the warning signs are frequently missed.

Often, what appears on the surface as difficult, frustrating behaviours and learning problems is a symptom of an underlying cause – an unheard story about their feelings inside. If we only address the behaviours without ever digging deeper, we miss out on an opportunity to understand the whole child – and create lasting, transformative change.
