YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

According to the National Institute on Mental Illness (NAMI) about 4 million children and adolescents experience a mental health issue that significantly impairs them at home, school, or in their social groups. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates prevalence rates for the following

diagnosable mental health conditions among children ages 3 to 17:

  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity (ADHD): 6.8%
  • Behavioral conditions: 3.5%
  • Anxiety: 3%
  • Depression: 2%
  • Autism: 1.1%
  • Tourette syndrome: 0.2%

These mental health conditions represent a portion of those experienced by children and adolescents, but life changes/stressors, peer pressure and normal developmental changes can all kick up difficulties for our children, which are hard to know how to handle.

Young children go through development so quickly it can leave our heads spinning.  And when children reach adolescence, relationships, romantic or otherwise, can be a point of significant strife. Relationships between parents and children are crucial to healthy development, but may become strained by the many ups and downs of  life no matter what age they are.

Parenting is one of the hardest roles we have and the one for which we receive the least amount of training. At Charleston Counseling Center, our focus is to support you in working with your children to develop good communication and problem solving skills that reduce anxiety, depression and acting out.

Improvements typically seen in therapy:

  • Insight into your child’s struggles and how help them more effectively
  • Greater sense of empowerment to handle behavioral challenges
  • Deeper emotional connection with your child
  • Reduced family stress and increased harmony

The skilled and compassionate professionals at Charleston Counseling Center have many years of experience and are ready to help your family stabilize and teach you effective and research-based tools to manage your child’s struggles. We accept many forms of insurance and offer after school and evening hours for your convenience.  Don’t worry and suffer alone, help is available today.  Contact us to make an appointment.
