Children can be impacted by things like anxiety, depression, ADHD and more. However, they can be difficult to identify because kids aren’t always able to communicate effectively. Untreated, child mental health issues can have long-term effects. A therapist who specializes in child mental health can help identify and treat children's mental health issues and help them achieve a better quality of life.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)

Parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) is an intervention for children between 0-5 who have experienced trauma resulting in changed behavior or emotions. It combines play and behavioral therapy, relying on the strength of the parent-child relationship. Parents also learn new communication techniques. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in PCIT listed below.
