Savannah pediatricians SouthCoast Richmond Hill doctors pediatrics

Despite the fact that mental health disorders are one of the most common diseases among children, the idea of mental health advocacy for our children is still pretty rare.

Read here  how Dr. Keith Seibert and his wife, Dr. Heather Seibert, both pediatric advocates at SouthCoast Health in Richmond Hill, helped one 11-year-old girl who was struggling with mental illness including anxiety and ADHD.  Learn more here.

Savannah pediatricians: Helping Your Child with Mental Illness

For the 17.1 million children in the United States estimated to have a mental illness, back-to-school season can be a time full of anxiety and worries.

“Mental illness still has a lot of stigma surrounding it, especially when it comes to children,” SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Dr. Nelson Elam stated. “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 the school season is full of worries with how your child will balance their mental illness, you are not alone.

SouthCoast pediatricians are offer these mental health tips to help both you and your family manage this school season and beyond, help give your children a positive and fulfilling life.

FREE Mother’s Day 2021 Community Picnic, May 9, Savannah

In honor of Maternal Mental Health month, the Maternal Mental Health Collective will host a Mother’s Day community picnic at Forsyth Park.

You’re invited: Sun. May 9 2021, 10AM-noon. This gathering welcomes any and all Savannah-area mamas (including those who are pregnant).

Bring a picnic to the park for this free, fun, laidback outdoor meet-up. Stop by on your way to your Mother’s Day plans – or stay the whole time. Bring something to sit on, something to eat, and yourself just as you are. Cold beverages and lots of good company will be provided. You’re welcome to bring your kids and family with you, or not.

All moms deserve care, support, and social connection – and this pandemic year has been long and so isolating for many moms. Come on out to make new friends, relax in the springtime (at a safe, outdoor distance), and find your community. The group will gather in the grass near the bandshell and playground.

Low Country Counseling in Savannah

Anxiety Disorder, that on-edge feeling or worry happens frequently and leaves the body fatigued, stressed, and malnourished – can affect children, too, just like adults. The difference being that they don’t know the words to describe what is happening.

Therapists from Low Country Counseling in Savannah share the causes of anxiety and the two types of anxiety in children here.

So how can parents tell the difference between situational stress and actual anxiety? Children will display changes in behavior. Look for these signs or shifts in their habits.
