Studies have shown that mental health problems affect around one in six children. Children with mental health issues struggle lifelong and risk developing mental health disorders. How can you help your child cope with life challenges and stressors or when should you seek professional help? When should you step in and how can you teach them to monitor and assess their mental health?
Good mental health helps children build positive social, emotional, behavioural, and communication skills. Here we invited Dr Gina Dahel, Head of Department of IMC's Children, to share the effects of stress on a child's development and approaches to support your child’s emotional wellbeing and build on their resilience to cope with challenges in life.
