August 25, 2015 – Faith & Psychology: Children’s Mental Health
Season 8, Episode 8 — “Children in America” Series (4 of 5)
They can develop the same mental health conditions as adults, but their symptoms may be different – do you know what to watch for and how you can help? On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and children’s mental health. It is the adults in a child’s life who need to be able to identify whether a child has a mental health concern. Unfortunately, many adults don’t know the signs and symptoms of mental illness in children. And although this is less the case than it used to be, there is still concern about the stigma associated with mental illness, as well as the use of certain medications, and the cost or logistics of getting treatment. We’ll be joined by a child psychiatrist to help us sort out the issues, and to understand better ways that adults can help children with mental health issues. Dr. Robert Goldstein talks with us about children and mental health on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
