Everyone (including children) can experience periods of stress, sadness, grief and conflict. Psychologists are mental health experts who provide psychological therapy to assist people to overcome a range of difficulties they may be challenged with in their everyday life.
Psychology can assist people to develop coping strategies to better understand issues or concerns that they are experiencing. These issues can range from reactive problems (stress, excessive worry, grief, low mood) to more significant issues (depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive behaviours, relationship breakdown and trauma).
If you are unsure whether you or your child might need to see a psychologist ask your doctor for more information.
