Child Mental Health Therapists in California
Children can be affected by many of the same mental health challenges as adults, such as anxiety or depression. These problems can be difficult to identify in children, who may not have the communication skills to express how they are feeling. However, the diagnosis of other mental health conditions are unique to childhood, such as oppositional defiant disorder or conduct disorder. Symptoms of neurodevelopmental conditions, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), are also often diagnosed in childhood, as they are commonly first noticed during this time. Early identification and treatment of mental health and neurodevelopment conditions can make a huge difference to the wellbeing of these individuals throughout their lives.
