Seeing the Signs: 14 Ways Kids and Families May be Telling You They Need Help
Session Description: Discuss how to recognize that a child or adolescent may need help when they are not showing visible signs of distress.
Sometimes it is difficult to recognize when a child or adolescent needs psychiatric intervention. We often look for visible signs of distress such as marks on the body, crying, appearing tired and unkept, or sleeping in class and failing school. But some mental health and behavioral health conditions are deeper below the surface than we may think and require the adults around the student to step in to help.
Join Támara Hill as she discusses the not-so-obvious signs that a child or adolescent may need help. You will also learn how you can best support the mental health of all students in your classroom and where to access crisis support and other mental health services for families when needed.
