Child Abuse And Mental Health


Child abuse is termed as mistreatment or causing harm to the child intentionally. This includes physical, emotional, sexual and medical abuse. Child abuse can directly affect a child's mental health. Kids who have suffered child abuse are most prone to mental illnesses. Early detection and treatment of mental illnesses in children are important. After a mental disorder develops, it becomes a regular part of the child's behaviour, which makes its treatment more difficult. Kids who have been subjected to child abuse may showcase diverse symptoms. In the worst cases, several kids even become suicidal. For the diagnosis of mental health problems, a physician or mental health specialist can look at your child's signs and symptoms, medical history, and family history. Treatments include medications and interaction therapy.
