"If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams", wrote the beloved author for children, Roald Dahl in his novel, The Twits. How true his words ring indeed in the post pandemic world where every child and adult has been through life changing events, a complete subversion of the normal that one had carefully built for years. It is no surprise therefore that mental health disorders among children aged 7 to 16 years rose from 1 in 9 in 2017 to 1 in 6 children in 2020 and the numbers are only increasing.
Mental health challenges are not new to 2023, in fact the last decade is testimony to the desperate call for attention to ADHD, Autism, Anxiety and many other disorders afflicting children world over. From celebrities to educational institutions and more, people from all walks of life are coming out, acknowledging their fight against self-harm, depression, addiction and more. Yet, worldwide, as per WHO 10% of children and adolescents experience a mental disorder, but the majority of them do not seek help or receive care. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death in 15-19 year-olds. Lack of attention to children's and teenagers' mental health and psychosocial development has long-term effects that limit opportunities for adults to have fulfilling lives.
A major challenge in getting help for mental health equivalent to what families avail for physical health is definitely the age-old stigma attached to it. However as per Dr. Amritash Rai, a highly established child and development psychiatrist in Australia, "even more critical is actually getting help when needed and the right quality of help. The only recourse parents have are services being provided by different experts in the field and sometimes even at different ends of the city."
Top private schools have mental health support being provided to students, parents are often called in if any developmental or milestone challenges are seen among the younger children. But with an adolescent who is self -harming, the problem is even more complex as the parent may not even be aware of this habit. School counsellors may not even be considered an option by these teenagers.
"The need of the hour is to make quality mental healthcare accessible and affordable" as per Vishal Sharma a reputed businessman in the medical industry and one of the co-founders of this child development and mental health centre in Noida, NCR. Childrenplus, the brainchild of Vishal and Dr. Amritash has a highly experienced team of registered clinical and counselling psychologists with over 50 years of clinical experience behind them. Childrenplus understands the pressures of urban living, highly demanding school environments, post pandemic social and emotional stressors and therefore is committed to reach out and offer high quality and effective support and treatment. It offers in-person and online counselling through an empathetic therapeutic relationship. All clinical interventions are planned and delivered by experts, peer reviewed and supervised at appropriate levels.
Services included providing diagnostic assessments for ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia as well as emotional disorders including depression, anxiety and PTSD.
Childrenplus comes as a bright shining ray of hope because it makes mental health and wellbeing for our children very accessible. Accessing an appointment is easy. Simply go to their website, call them on 8447449331.
It is time we as parents were mindful of the importance of the good thoughts that Mr. Dahl wrote of decades ago it is time that we as parents pay close attention to the "panic attacks" that are little ones often undergo and take them to specialists who can help address and remove what can become a lifelong malady that hampers their chance to a happy and healthy adulthood.

Childrenplus is a child and adolescent mental health service with a mission to bring evidence-based, world-class, multidisciplinary assessment and psychological therapy for a range of mental health disorders in children and adolescents.
The idea for childrenplus is the brainchild of two childhood friends Vishal and Dr. Amritash.
They had both have personal experience of dealing with mental health conditions in children and young people. Vishal through experience of illness in a family member and Amritash having been a child and adolescent psychiatrist who has practiced in India, UK and currently practices in Australia. Their experience of mental health assessments was that they were often difficult to organize, involved long waits and were often not comprehensive.
The idea for childrenplus was born out of their desire and mission to improve access to high quality multidisciplinary mental health assessments and therapy in children and teenagers.
