Behavioral Health Q&A

What is behavioral health care?

Behavioral health care includes services that improve children’s behavioral and emotional wellness. Parents sometimes forget that children face an array of difficulties as they grow and develop, and it’s not always easy for them to verbalize the way they feel. 

In fact, common behavioral health concerns often have few or no obvious symptoms to an untrained eye. The specialists at Millennium Pediatrics are here to help your child or teen thrive physically and mentally. 

Who benefits from behavioral health services?

While just about any child or teen can reap the many advantages of participating in behavioral health services at Millennium Pediatrics, those who often benefit most include patients with:

  • Autism
  • Sleep disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Feeding problems
  • Phobias
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Developmental disabilities 
  • Tic and habit disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Substance use disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Anger management issues

If your child shows signs of ongoing sadness, loss of interest in favorite activities, anxiousness or fear, social isolation, behavioral problems, substance abuse, or thoughts of suicide, see the practice for an evaluation. 

What should I expect during behavioral health treatments?

The initial behavioral health consultation will go over birth and medical history, family history of behavioral or neurological problems, current diet, sleep patterns, social support systems, family dynamics, current issues and interventions tried.

This information will help your primary care provider to formulate a working diagnosis and involve other specialists such as counselors, occupational therapists, neuropsychologists, neurologists and psychiatrists.
