BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG) – As the Bay District Schools begin to implement the new state-mandated mental health curriculum, officials also say that it is important for parents to participate in the home. Ken Chisholm, Head of the Mental Health Team sat down in our studio for this week's education segment.
Chisolm says that one of the first things parents can do for their child's mental health at home is to ensure that they are communicating with them. Spending quality time can make a big difference.
There are a number of warning signs that parents should look out for including changes in attitude, grades, appetite and sleep patterns. This may mean that a child may have to visit a pediatrician.
