This is a quick update from the FDA. They now warn against treating children with behavior and mood problems with drugs. I am reading between the lines a bit here, but I think that inherent in this warning is that children may need to talk to someone instead. Depression, behavior issues, and other mood disorders are very treatable and children can benefit from working with a psychologist. If you have concerns about your child, feel free to contact me or another psychologist. Treatment can make a significant difference in the life of a child who is struggling. Even if they do not meet criteria for a psychological disorder, it can really help for your child to develop coping skills.
