One of the typical things parents check off the To Do list heading into the new school year is taking their child in for a well check or sports physical.
There are the obvious questions and concerns you think of right away to address during those appointments, such as is your child taking in enough fruits and vegetables, are there vision problems, and is their physical growth on track?
Dr. William Gerard, a physician at Rogers, says while those concerns are valid, “It’s also important to not forget about your child’s mental health. Good mental health supports good physical health.”
“Starting a dialogue now about these topics with your child’s primary care physician will allow room for them to ask more follow up questions to help determine if you should seek professional mental health help for your child,” adds Dr. Gerard.
If you think your child might struggling with mental health and need a higher level of care, Rogers can help with evidence-based treatment for children and teens. Call 800-767-4411 or request a free, confidential screening online.
