Family Talks Clinic

The Best Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatrists

 

The statistics prove that mental illness is more common that you think.
Childhood is the time for learning, developing and maturing into a healthy adult. It is a time of rapid changes and vulnerabilities. The future of one’s mental health can greatly be affected as a result of the timely care that they receive before they become an adult. As such, it is incredibly important to identify mental health issues early in life and deal with them within the family context to ensure a healthy future for them, your family and your community.
Many forms of mental health problems first appear when the person is still very young. Whether it’s Depression, an Anxiety disorder, or a less common condition such as Bipolar disorder or Schizophrenia, the first episode is likely to occur when the person is still living with their family. Even if they have moved out of home or are older, the mental health issue may not only be distressing for them, it may affect others too.
Mental health issues often have a ‘ripple effect’ on families, creating tension, uncertainty, troubled emotions and big changes in how people live their lives. Different family members are likely to be affected in different ways. These effects on the family are sometimes left unsupported. At Family Talks Clinic we believe that working with the entire family is the best way to serve the person affected by mental health issues.
