Pediatric Mental Health Diagnoses (Nursing)

Pediatric Mental Health Diagnoses (Nursing)

by Brenda Marshall, EdD, MSN, RN

Both children and adolescents go through crucial periods of development of social and emotional habits related to mental health. Many events can occur during these developmental periods that can have both positive and negative effects on a young person’s mental and physical well-being.

In this course, you’ll learn about the common mental health disorders in childhood and adolescence, the epidemiology of these disorders, and other mental health challenges that the pediatric population faces in modern times.

We’ll discuss certain adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress, as well as review the autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and the treatment modalities available for these disorders.
