Bullying is unwanted aggressive behavior by a person or group that targets another person or group. It involves an imbalance of power and is usually repeated over time.
Body positivity is about loving yourself and others regardless of physical appearance. It’s about encouraging self-positivity, acceptance and health.
While loss affects us in many different ways, it’s important to learn coping strategies for our mental health.
Physical abuse is any non-accidental act that results in physical injury to a child or adolescent. Physical abuse can result from physical punishment that goes too far or when a parent or caregiver lashes out in anger.
When two or more people are connected and behave toward each other, we call that a relationship. Relationships can take many forms, but ultimately can be healthy or unhealthy.
Poor academic performance, not wanting to go to school or participate in school or strained relationships with classmates and teachers are all problems children can face at school.
Self-injury is the act of physically hurting oneself without the intent to die. It is a sign of emotional distress. It shows that a person has a lack of healthy coping skills.
Sexual abuse can include both touching and non-touching behaviors. In general, no thought is given to what effect this behavior may have on the child.
For children and teens with a mental health disorder, sleep is especially important, as they may be more sensitive than the typical child or teen.
Stress is a common part of every child’s life. Children worry about their appearance, about tests and school projects, being accepted by friends, being separated from family, and more.
