Re: Mental Illness - Signs and Symptoms of Mental Health Issues in Youth

Signs and Symptoms of Mental Health Issues in African-American Youth:   A Guide for Parents is an article from iAddiction on Mental Health Issues in Youth. 
"One in ten youth has a serious mental health problem severe enough to impair functioning at home, school, and in the community. African American children in particular often face special circumstances that put them at increased risk for mental health issues. This guide is for parents of African American children who worry their child may be in a mental health crisis, or for those who simply want to be as informed as possible to prevent potential issues.  It will discuss why African American children are at increased risk, what issues they're likely to encounter and symptoms of problems, as well as ways you can help your child overcome what he's going through.  Though this can serve as a helpful starting point, it should never be used to replace professional care."
