What can you do if you are concerned with your child’s mental health?

  • Consult with your child’s doctor or pediatrician. Describe what concerns you and ask for recommendations. They may provide a referral for a Mental Health Professional. 

    Contact key people at your child’s school. Who should you reach out to? The School Counselor is a great resource to start if you aren’t sure. Click here for the Madison City School Counselors Contact List. 

    Teachers can also provide insight such as changes or concerns in your child’s behavior. Ask: Are they noticing similar concerns? 

    Crisis help lines are available:

    If you or your child are in immediate danger, please call 911. 

    Remember: You are not alone!  Reach out for help.
