It can be hard to know whether you need to reach out to a professional when you are worried about your child’s behavior or if you see that your child is struggling. And if you do reach out, what type of specialist and treatment are right for your child?
Explore the Healthy Minds Fairfax website to find information on whether your child might need behavioral health care, finding the appropriate professional for your child, and the right treatment for his or her condition. Be sure to note the things to look for and questions to ask to make sure that you're getting the quality care that your child deserves.

Healthy Minds Fairfax, a county initiative to increase equitable access to quality behavioral health services for children, youth, and their families, is working on putting together a plan for Fairfax County, and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church to make sure that children, youth, and their families can easily get the services and support they need to take care of their mental health. We want to understand more about your experiences with mental health, what might make your mental health worse, where you turn for help for children, youth and their families, and the things that make it easier or harder to get help. We plan to gather information through surveys, community informational sessions, and meeting with groups and organizations.
