If you have questions or concerns about your child’s mental, emotional, or behavioral wellness, we’re here to help. Beech Acres Parenting Center offers a full range of mental and behavioral health services for children. Services are offered at our offices and at some Greater Cincinnati area schools.
At Beech Acres, we believe in a holistic approach, bringing together a team of professionals from many disciplines: child and adolescent psychiatry, counseling, and developmental-behavioral support. By doing so, we can provide the best and most complete treatment options for your child.
Approximately 1 in 5 children between the ages of 13 and 18 will experience some type of mental illness during their lives. It is important for parents to be able to be aware of the potential warning signs and symptoms of mental illness so you can seek proper intervention as soon as possible. Some things to look for include:
- Changes in mood
- Presentation of intense feelings and emotions
- Substance abuse
- Unexpected or erratic changes in behavior
- Difficulty focusing or concentrating
- Sudden changes in friendships or social dynamics
- Physical symptoms
- Unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite
- Substance abuse

Understand And Overcome Stigma
What is stigma? Stigma is a negative association or perception of a person due to their specific circumstances. Historically, mental illness has been portrayed in such a negative manner that a shroud of stigma has befallen those that struggle with their mental health. Despite the widespread prevalence of mental illness, many find it difficult to discuss their symptoms and seek help fearing fame and judgment. While great strides have been made to overcome the stigma associated with mental illness in recent years, we still have a long way to go.
