May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month. The Council for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect encourages you to talk with your children about experiences that could be impacting their emotions and behavior. Mental illness does have long-term effects on children's emotional and physical well-being. Understanding mental health and illnesses can help end the stigma surrounding them. If your child is exhibiting some unusual behavioral or emotional symptoms such as intense feelings or mood changes, this could be a sign of possible mental health issues. By having open and honest discussions with your child or a child you care about and utilizing the proper intervention methods, you could help prevent problems from worsening or impacting them severely for the long term.
