SouthCoast Health pediatrician: Helping your child with mental illness

An estimated 17.1 million children nationwide have a mental illness.

“Mental illness still has a lot of stigma surrounding it, especially when it comes to children,” SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Dr. Nelson Elam said. “And yet, that number of children with a mental illness is more than the number of children with cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. It’s time we stop being hesitant to talk about mental illnesses that are potentially harming our children.”

If back-to-school season is full of worries with how your child will balance their mental illness, know you are not alone.

SouthCoast Health pediatric experts provide tips to help both you and your family manage here.
