Did you know that you can bring your child for counseling for a number of common concerns AND your insurance might actually cover it?
It’s easy to think our problems need to be really big before it’s OK to ask for some help. Your child might not have major behavioral issues or need to go to the hospital, but they might have some troubles that could respond well to counseling.
Your child might resist going to school, or get really upset about going to the doctor. Maybe they’ve experienced a loss like a move or divorce. They might be dealing with a bully or bullying others. Or maybe they have some health issues like allergies or a chronic illness.
All of these are great reasons to visit a counselor, which may even be covered by your health insurance. With all the pressure kids (and adults) are facing today, who couldn’t use a little help building a good toolbox of age-appropriate stress relievers and coping strategies to move past those hang-ups and build resilience and strength?
Your child doesn’t need to have a serious mental illness to get some extra assistance. If you’re on the fence, call a local counselor and ask their opinion about your situation.
