Did you know that one in five children has a diagnosable mental health condition? Yet, less than a quarter of youth who need mental health care receive it. Don’t let your child be one of them. Just as parents play a vital role in their children’s physical health, they should prioritize their mental health, too.
Here are three strategies to foster your child’s mental health:
- Help your children develop resiliency through everyday activities.
- Stay in tune with your children so you are aware of any mental health symptoms that develop.
- Lastly, ask for help if your child needs it.
Help your children grow resiliency by creating structure and routine. This can help them feel they have a sense of control and consistency.
