Nearly every child or teen faces some challenges as they grow up because of peer pressure, family changes, a death or other loss, managing a chronic illness, or simply because it isn’t easy making the change from being a child to being an adult.
For any number of reasons, your child’s emotions and behaviors can cause them to become anxious or depressed, have an eating disorder, cause problems in relationships at home and at school, or even consider suicide.
When your child has trouble coping it’s important to speak with a mental health professional, even if you’re unsure whether your child needs help.
Our experts in child psychiatry have faculty status at the University of Texas Southwestern, so they have access to the latest research and treatments for children and adolescents. We’re recognized experts on treating eating disorders, depression and other mood disorders, and in preventing suicide in children and teens. We work closely with you, your child and family to help your child in one setting over the course of your child’s condition.
