Behavioral Health Q & A

What is behavioral health?

Behavioral health involves the connection between your child’s emotions, behaviors, mind, body, and overall well-being.

A mentally healthy child reaches developmental and emotional milestones throughout their childhood. They learn well, have social skills, and can cope with problems.

Children who struggle with behavioral issues or their mental health usually can’t behave well or handle their emotions when stress or problems come their way. They can also experience extreme worries or fears, causing disruptive behaviors.

Behavioral health takes in many things, including:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Conduct disorder (CD)
  • Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Tourette Syndrome
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship problems
  • Stress
  • Grief
  • Addiction
  • Mood disorders

Behavioral health concerns can be managed with treatment like therapy, counseling, and medication.

When should I seek support for my child’s behavioral health?

Children can struggle with their behavior for many reasons. This is normal. When a child doesn’t get what they want, they might act out. However, if behavioral issues cause a constant disturbance in the home, at school, or in public, you should seek help from the Northeast Pediatric Associates PA professionals.

As your child reaches developmental milestones, they can benefit from professional intervention. Behavioral health professionals can guide your child and the whole family. In many cases, it takes effort by the entire family to help a child navigate through emotional and behavioral problems.
