The psychological and emotional development of a child or young person can be a complex process. For many reasons, children and adolescents can develop anxieties, which seem to be out of the ordinary, or their mood can seem lower than that of their peers. This difference may establish patterns of unhealthy thoughts and behaviours that can create trauma during their developmental stages.
Just like adults, children and young people also face challenges in their lives from time to time. We recognise that every child and young person is unique, with different factors contributing to their difficulties, emotions and behaviours.
