Signs of a Child Struggling with Mental Illness

If you experience mental illness, your children are more likely to

Do you have depression? Schizophrenia? BPD? Do your parents? Did their parents?

These questions might seem irrelevant to the difficulties you are facing with your child, but they are important to look into. If you have a history of mental illness, your offspring are significantly more likely to experience similar problems.

Of course, this does not mean that just because you have anxiety that your daughter necessarily will. However, due to the increased chance, it is important to know the signs of the mental illnesses that you or your family have dealt with, and constantly be on the lookout for them. If you begin to notice symptoms in your child, do not wait to see how they play out. Bring them in to talk to a psychiatrist or therapist, and consult with them on what the best approach might be. If you want to begin them talking to a therapist before you even notice signs, even better!
