Early help is important
Health experts agree that the earlier concerns are known, the earlier help can begin – and early help means a more complete recovery. This is true not only of illnesses like diabetes and asthma, but also for mental health concerns.
Early help can prevent symptoms from becoming as severe and causes less disruption in all aspects of life – at home, school or work and in the community.
If you think your child or teen needs some help, take the time to pause, connect and re-set.
- Pause long enough to explore the concerns you have, and get good information to guide your next steps.
- Connect with information, resources and get help from a professional if you need it.
- Re-set life with support and self-care, using hacks for resolving issues and resources you can re-visit over time as your concerns and needs change.
