If you are worried about your child’s emotions or behaviors, you can start by talking to friends, family members, your spiritual counselor, your child’s school counselor, or your child’s pediatrician/family physician about your concerns.
Your child’s pediatrician can talk with you about your concerns, and can make referrals for treatment.
Your insurance company can provide you with a list of mental health professionals within your healthcare network.
The Children’s Mental Health Matters! Campaign has compiled a Family Resource Kit for Maryland Families.
