What to Do If Your Child Is in Crisis

Recognizing that your child is going through a tough time with their mental health can be really hard. It’s not always easy to tell if it’s just a bad day or something more serious. You might feel scared and unsure about how to help, especially when dealing with schools, healthcare, and limited resources. But in this situation, trust your gut. You know your child best. One thing is certain amidst all the complexity: your deep love for them, your knowledge about them, and your commitment to keeping them safe.

Understanding a Crisis
A mental health crisis happens when your child is at risk of hurting themselves or others, or when their emotions and behavior become really extreme and hard to control. Signs of a mental health crisis can include:

  • Talk of Suicide: Your child might say things like “I want to die” or “I don’t want to be here anymore.”
  • Threats of Harm: They might threaten to hurt themselves or others.
  • Self-Harm: This could involve things like cutting or burning themselves.
  • Agitation and Aggression: Severe emotional upset and physical aggression, like being angry, breaking things, and more.
  • Hallucinations or Delusions: Your child might see or believe things that aren’t real.
  • Isolation: They might withdraw from friends and family, feeling alone.
