Youth with Mental Health Problems

The young are the future of the society and therefore the most vulnerable ones as there are many risk factors such as poor hygiene, persistent behavioral risk, poor basic sanitation and poor choices of food which are constantly contributing to deadly diseases being caused to them.

Health measures which are taken are scarcely inadequate as many young children bear the burden of poor health owing to the effects of acute and chronic illness. Global interest in the health of adolescents and youth has manifested itself in the many expressions to their health and mental and physical development.

Many behavioral disorders like ADHA (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), mental disorder, Tourette syndrome and anxiety disorders are developing among young adolescent who then face many problems in their professional life. Youth with better mental health are physically healthier, demonstrate more socially positive behaviors and engage in fewer risky behaviors.

Whereas youth with mental health problems such as depression are more likely to engage in health risk behaviors, furthermore, any mental health can pose a significant financial and social burden on the families.

Quality medical health should be provided since the early days and more importantly, being diagnosed as health disorders may start by the age of 14. If not treated properly, such mental health problems can affect adult functioning in areas such as social relationships and participation in the workforce professionally.

These mental health disorders are the most common diseases of early childhood as out of 74.5 million children in the United States, out of which 17.1 million have or have had a psychiatric disorder. Half of all psychiatric illness occurs before the age of 14. In spite of the huge magnitude of the problem, factors such as lack of awareness among parents contribute to the development of mental disorders among children.

Parents must take initiatives to prevent such disorders from the early stage of development and find information regarding:

Prevalence of childhood mental illness

Gap between illness and care

Total cost to pay for ignoring children’s mental health

Effectiveness of any treatment to cure

The risk factors which contribute to mental problems include child abuse, family, school and neighborhood violence. With serious changes among children which they soon exhibit in classrooms, it greatly affects their learning patterns, behavior or how they handle their emotions and stress load. There are so many other implications seen. They just don’t like the food you give to them. They always complain on silly little things. You switch off their room’s light anticipating they are well asleep but they aren’t. Look for the changes you can make to ease them out. Change their room’s entire furniture and buy them what they like. Get them one of the best mattresses available in the market to sleep on but make sure you read some of the reviews as well. provides the top mattress articles available today so give it a read before latching onto one.    

Symptoms for exhibiting abnormal behavior may develop throughout the teenage years and may become difficult to cure. However it is not impossible to treat and manage such disorders but parents and doctors must work closely for the treatment because once a mental illness develops, it takes form and becomes a regular part of a young child’s behavior.

Helping young children and their parents to adapt certain situations and help the child to manage difficulties early in life may prevent the development of mental disorders. It is advised that a child who faces such mental problems be taken to a mental health specialist, psychiatrist or psychologist to deeply understand the problem and recommend behavioral treatment for him/her.

Sometimes it is even essential to evaluate the different conditions which the child may be comfortable with or not so the whole family may need counseling to find better ways to handle his/her certain disruptive or aggressive behavioral changes. With certain stress and behavior management techniques, a child can easily respond and calm his certain abnormal behaviors and with time cure them himself while developing new skills, attitudes and ways to relate with each other and his surroundings.
