HEALTHY BEHAVIOR BEGINS IN CHILDHOOD

Many behavioral health issues have their beginnings in childhood or adolescence. The National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey found that 20 percent of children ages 8 to 15 had at least one behavioral health issues, a rate that is comparable to diabetes, asthma, and other diseases of childhood. Yet, mental disorders often go undiagnosed and untreated for years.

Lakeside focuses on identifying symptoms early and finding effective treatments that can have a significant impact on how children develop and function as they grow into adults.
