Description


This is a book that every parent, grandparent, family member, social worker, childcare provider and educator must have. It presents, reviews and discusses the serious dark side of pediatrics, children and adolescents with psychiatric and mental health issues and conditions, their warning signs and symptoms and directions for help, care and intervention. It guides adults who are in a position to make a difference with early intervention to be diligent and recognize signs of children having mental disorders, anxiety or depression, or at risk for suicidal behavior.


Other topics addressed are obsessive-compulsive behavior, conduct disorder, eating disorders, PANDAS and developmental learning disorders like autism spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactive disorder. More sensitive topics like gender dysphoria and obesity are reviewed and discussed. There are comprehensive reviews of substance abuse, alcohol and marijuana abuse disorders, PTSD, child schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Identification and early intervention for mental illness in children does make a big difference in their ultimate outcome.
