Early Identification and Treatment of Symptoms Is the Best Bet for WA Kids
Parents are stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to getting their children mental health treatment. Few disorders are diagnosable until children are older, which means that they could potentially live with debilitating symptoms for years before they are given the diagnosis they need to begin treatment. This means that parents must be responsible for tracking symptoms and approaching healthcare professionals who can recognize the signs of a mental health disorder in children and get them the help they need.
Children who don’t get the proper care and learn how to control the symptoms of their mental and emotional issues can end up paying a hefty price. NAMI reports that in 2006, 1,455 children were incarcerated in a juvenile facility in Washington. Across the country, it is estimated that about 70 percent of children in the juvenile justice system have mental health disorders and about 20 percent of them have a severe mental health condition.
