Treatment Discussions Raise Awareness About Children’s Mental Health

Posted on 05/12/12 05:58:am


To raise awareness about the importance of effective treatment for mental health disorders, members of the clinical staff at Rogers will once again be speaking to various school and parent groups throughout southeastern Wisconsin as part of the Speak Up for Kids! campaign during National Children's Mental Health Awareness Week, May 6-12.

This year’s speakers will share information about identifying and treating ADHD in kids. Speakers include the clinical director of our child and adolescent day treatment program and two child and adolescent psychiatrists from our inpatient programs. These programs, along with our residential programs for children and teens, give kids the tools they need to help manage their mental health and enjoy life as a kid again.

Mental Health month helps address issues of stigma

With millions of children affected directly by mental illness, Mental Health Month and National Children's Mental Health Awareness Week provide important opportunities to raise awareness and address the stigma associated with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses. The treatment teams at Rogers continue to be active within our local communities and across the nation, raising awareness about the importance of mental health and the different types of effective treatments that are available.

Rogers provides a variety of treatment options to help children and teens with a wide range of mental health symptoms and diagnoses, including residential treatment, day treatment and specialized partial hospitalization and inpatient stabilization. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is used to address the thoughts and behaviors commonly found in anxiety disorders and other mood disorders.
