Thank you for your question! One of the first things we recommend is to try to help your child relax. An agitated or panicked child will not be able to respond to anything you are saying or doing because their body is taking over.

Happy World Children’s Day!

World Children’s Day is UNICEF’s annual day of action for children, by children. This year’s theme is “Inclusion, for Every Child” and, at The Giving Tree Centre, we believe this is more important than ever. The pandemic has taken a toll on all children across the world and today, children are raising their voices on the issues that matter to their generation.

This World Children’s Day it’s more important than ever that the world listens to their ideas and demands. It is time to end racism and discrimination and stand up for a more equal, inclusive world!

According to The World Health Organization, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a global mental health crisis, dramatically increasing both anxiety and depression disorders. Today, and every day, we must work together to strengthen the mental health care system to provide accessible and quality services for the full spectrum of mental health needs.

At The Giving Tree Centre, we strive to move towards a world where all youth feel safe, secure, and stable. This starts with eliminating stigma, discrimination and working together to address the mental health and well-being of children in our community. That is why we offer a suite of tailored mental health treatments and assessments designed to support each child and family’s specific needs, strengths, and challenges.

No one should suffer alone. If your family or child needs support, please reach out today for immediate assistance!

In 2019, 13 percent of adolescents reported having a major depressive episode, a 60 percent increase from 2007. And su***de rates, which had been stable from 2000 to 2007 among this group, leaped nearly 60 percent by 2018.
