MHAMD

Options

If you are worried about your child’s emotions or behavior, you can start by talking with friends, family members, your spiritual counselor, your child’s school counselor, or your child’s pediatrician/family physician about your concerns. The primary sources of information about options for helping your child are:

Pediatrician – He or she can listen to your concerns and make referrals for treatment.
Insurance Company – Can provide you with a list of mental health professionals within your healthcare network.
School Psychologists – Can help children and youth academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally.
Core Service Agencies – These are local agencies (by county) that are responsible for planning, managing and monitoring a specific area’s mental health services in Maryland.
Family or System Navigators – Navigators can help provide one-on-one support to families.
