Information for Parents

Children and youth show their problems in different areas of their lives and in a variety of ways. A child or adolescent who functions well at home may have problems in another setting, such as in the classroom or with peers. Some young people may show signs of anxiety or depression, while others may exhibit aggression, get in trouble with the law or have difficulties with substance use.

As a parent or caregiver, you may feel confused and anxious about meeting the needs of a child or youth with these issues, and about where and how to seek information and treatment. CAMH's Child, Youth and Family Service treats young people with mental health and/or addiction problems. The CAMH information below can help you learn more about parenting and mental health issues.
