Teen Mental Health Warning Signs
Teenage mental health problems rarely just happen. There are a multitude of warning signs. Therefore, we will offer insight into these red flags. For example, what behavioral shifts imply a teen mental health issue?
As a parent, you should know these warning signs. Being aware of teenage mental health red flags is a positive first step. Such awareness can help you catch a condition. You can stop it before it progresses to a teen mental health disorder.
None of these red flags are absolute indicators of an adolescent mental health condition or disorder. However, they are definite warning signs. They should be heeded and examined.
When it comes to your child, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
