Behavioral Health

In today’s world of increasing pressure, stress, anxiety and worry, our children’s behavioral and emotional wellness is often left out of the overall healthcare plan. At Alzein Pediatric Group, we make sure that your child’s emotional wellbeing is also a priority, ensuring a well rounded approach to making sure your child grows and thrives body, soul and mind.

Nail-biting, hair and eyelash pulling, hair chewing, tics, coughs or repetitive body movements in toddlers and elementary school children can signal a need for early intervention. Guided conversations and soothing techniques will help children understand their anxieties and use self-help strategies to feel better, building a foundation of problem-solving that will make them stronger and more self sufficient for decades to come.

We’ll help older children and teens understand why they feel depressed, angry or reckless and give them more sophisticated coping tools to help them navigate an increasingly stressful world as they grow into adults.

Alzein Pediatric Group can help diagnose and treat more serious behavioral health issues such as bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, borderline personality, eating disorders, alcohol/substance abuse disorders, anxiety disorders, panic attacks, schizophrenia, social anxiety disorders and more. We can help your child achieve emotional wellness, helping them grow into productive and healthy adults.

If your child – of any age – is showing signs of emotional or mental distress by exhibiting unusual or troubling behaviors, please call our office at 708-424-7600 to make an appointment with our behavioral healthcare provider.
