When to Seek Help for Mental Health Issues

Middle school is a difficult time for adolescents, as they are literally “caught in the middle” between childhood and adulthood.  With all of the normal and developmentally appropriate changes going on, between friendships, increased academic demands, physical changes and more, it can be difficult for adolescents to cope.  Add on stressful events such as peer pressure, families affected by divorce, military deployment, grief and more, and handling everyday life can be a struggle.  For further information, click on this link:  When to Seek Help for Your Child.


How to Access Mental Health Resources

Adolescents facing struggles may benefit from coaching and counseling services to work on coping skills to help them navigate through the difficult times.  Mental health services are available to most families via their health insurance, and we have additional resources we can refer you to as well.  Please click the link to find out how to access Mental Health resources for a list of how to find assistance based on your health insurance status and to see what local options are available to you.
