Finding Mental Healthcare for Children of Immigrants - Facts for Families

Each year, many immigrants and refugees move to the United States. Coming to a new country can be an exciting new beginning, but adjusting to a new home, language, and culture can be difficult. These changes can be especially hard on children, who may feel sad, anxious, or angry. They may have difficulty talking about their feelings, misbehave, do poorly in school, or have trouble fitting in and making friends. Finding a mental health professional who can understand and help with these problems can also be difficult. The American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's Facts for Families provides concise and up-to-date information on finding mental healthcare for children of immigrants.
