How to help your child with school anxiety & sadness.
Parents often ask a Focused Education psychologist or practitioner “Why is my child anxious and sad?”. This is a complex mental health question that requires a carefully considered answer from an experienced psychologist that cares about the health and welfare of school children. Helping your child with a mood disorder requires specialist help from a child mental health service.
How to determine if your child has a mental health issue or is just having an emotional day.
Children are just like their parents. We all have days where we feel sad and days where we feel happy. However sad days that occur often or frequent emotional ‘meltdowns’ that happen without warning could be a sign your child has a mental health issue.
Mental health issues are serious but are a normal part of everyday life.
Many parents that visit Focused Education seem to be scared to consider that their child has a mental health condition. No parent wants bad news and every parent wants the very best for their child. Focused Education psychologists can help turn bad news into….well…just news…
At Focused Educational Psychology we want mental health to be serious and just a little boring.
It sounds a little crazy for a psychology service to say they want mental health to be boring. We are not saying that it’s not serious. We are saying that it’s okay to have a mental health condition and we hate that mental health is viewed differently to physical health. The common cold is boring, yet not desirable. If your child catches a serious but treatable physical health condition like influenza virus for example: you, as a caring parent, would take your child to your local doctor and seek an appropriate, targeted medical treatment. When you told you family and friends about your child’s flu there would be no social stigma or shocked looks.
