Children’s Mental & Physical Health
Mental and physical health are essential parts of a child’s overall health—it is a complex interactive relationship between mental health and physical health, along with their ability to succeed in school, at work and in society. Children’s mental and physical health affect how he or she thinks, feels and acts on the inside and outside.
The management of your child’s mental and physical health includes the following:
- Behavioral problems
- Other mood disorders
- Genetic disorders
- Metabolic disorders
It is estimated that approximately 15 million of our nation’s children can currently be diagnosed with a mental health disorder. Even more so, many are at risk of developing a disorder due to risk factors in their biology or genetics—within their families, schools, and communities.
Contact your pediatrician for more information on your child’s mental and physical health to ensure the best care available. Through mental health and physical health, we can help your child continue to remain healthy and happy!
