We cannot control whether or not our child will develop a mood disorder. However, we can take precautions to ensure that they feel safe, loved, and comfortable expressing their feelings.
One of the ways parents can achieve this is by spending quality time with their children. The more time you spend with them, the more you’ll understand who they are and how they think. This will allow you to help them should they ever develop a disorder. It will also help them to feel loved and wanted.
Seeing a child struggle is gut-wrenching. When it is our own child, the pain is so much greater. If you are looking for mental health services for children in Ohio, SUN Behavioral in Columbus can help you and your children have a happier present and future.
Treatment involves resolving the symptoms leading to hospitalization, crisis planning and engaging the family in the appropriate continuing care needs. Communication and treatment interventions are geared toward the developmental stage of each child. We use a safety system to teach the children to develop an internal sense of safety and control.
