Your child’s mental health is just as important as his or her physical health. Mental fitness during childhood means having the developmental and emotional ability to learn healthy social skills and how to cope with problems. When your child is mentally healthy, he or she has a positive quality of life, and can function well whether at home, at school, or in your community.
Common childhood mental disorders include:
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
- Obsessive -Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Mood swings
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
As part of their general pediatric care, the board-certified physicians at Children’s Medical Center in Palm Harbor, Trinity, Westchase, and Lutz, Florida, help their young patients manage their mental health disorders.
The physicians assist by providing early diagnosis, education, and resources for everyone involved in the child’s treatment. And we specialize by including teachers, coaches, therapist, and family members.
