If left untreated, a mental health problem can delay a child’s normal development and lead to more severe problems later on. It’s good to know there are others that parents can turn to and trust. Maryland Family Network mental health specialists, work directly with child care providers, children and parents, to identify and solve problems.  Together you can decide if it’s just growing pains or something more.
