Common Mental and Behavioral Disorders in Children

A mental or behavioral issue can present itself in many forms. A few of the most frequent disorders that appear in children are:

Anxiety

If your child is so fearful or worried that they unable to perform daily functions at school or at home then they may have an anxiety disorder.

Depression

All kids experience sadness. However, if this sadness progresses into feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness, it may be a sign of a more concerning condition such as depression.

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a common neurodevelopmental condition that can affect children in Jacksonville FL as well as children from all over the world in a variety of ways. Generally, kids with ADHD experience trouble when trying to focus on a task.

Conduct Disorder (CD)

If children are consistently breaking rules set forth by their parents or teachers, and are aggressive toward others, they may be diagnosed with conduct disorder.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

This disorder typically presents itself in children ages 8-12 and is characterised by a short temper, refusal to follow the direction of others, and arguing with people in a disrespectful manner.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Kids with OCD may have obsessions, compulsions, or both. These cause the child to have an urge that may not be particularly rational, but makes them feel as though they must act on it anyway.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Generally, children are incredibly resilient, which allows them to recover quickly from a stressful event. Cases where such stressful events leave a lasting, negative impression on their child and their life are known as post-traumatic stress disorder.

Tourette’s Syndrome

Both children and adults with Tourette’s will make involuntary verbal or physical outbursts that are referred to as “tics”.
