The number of people suffering from different types of psychological disorders is more than ever. Employees must struggle under the pressure to meet work 24/24. Teenagers are screened through social networking sites. And the aging population means that more elderly people are struggling to make money and to receive quality care.
In fact, even elementary school teachers report an increase in the number of children with signs of anxiety.
But whether you are an adult or a child, finding out the cause of these psychological disorders is very complex – and therefore the treatment is very difficult.
TS. Meg Arroll, a psychologist specializing in health, will address the most common stress factors today, and how they differ for each age group.
Mental health problems regardless of age.
While 2% of children may be clinically diagnosed with depression, many other diseases are not.
A study by NASUWT, the largest teacher union in the UK recently found that 98% of teachers surveyed reported having had contact with children with mental health problems, some of whom were only four years old. .
The causes of psychological problems in young children are as varied as those in adults (family, school, friends, family history, etc.).
But psychological difficulties may be more difficult to identify in children, because anxiety can be explained simply by childish timidity and will disappear when grown up.
However, anxiety as a child (4-5 years) is a sign that the child may be depressed in the future.
So, if your child avoids participating in group activities such as a birthday party, having difficulty speaking and answering questions at school, or confessing to you that you do not feel comfortable as a child Other, he or she may be facing social anxiety disorder.
Early intervention is key to children with mental health problems.
Establishing and maintaining daily routines, exercise and open mind about family concerns can also help to address mental health problems in young children.
Mental health problems tend to increase in adolescence and can lead to eating disorders, self-harm and violence.
The rebellion of puberty, learning and testing pressure, and the ongoing onslaught of social networking can all contribute to anxiety and depression in adolescents.
By age 18, one fifth of adolescents will experience a depression. It is difficult to see what behavior is normal psychological development at this stage and what behavior is a sign of something more serious.
School troubles, not being interested in doing what you’ve always liked and blaming yourself for any mistakes is a sign of mental health problems.
If your child behaves differently from your personality, trust your instincts and do not assume that it is just normal sadness.
