Behavioral health disorders, usually developing in childhood or adolescents, are a group of mental health conditions that have the potential to cause a significant amount of stress in a young person’s life. Young people with behavioral disorders will often display chronic patterns of aggression, defiance, disruption, and hostility. Furthermore, the behaviors associated with this group of disorders will often cause problems at home, school, and within interpersonal relationships.
Children and adolescents with behavioral health disorders may frequently throw temper tantrums, be openly defiant, and could end up hurting themselves or others. Additionally, a young person with a behavioral health disorder may struggle academically, often resulting in school failure. These young people may also receive disciplinary action at school or get in trouble with law enforcement on a regular basis. If these disorders are not properly treated in adolescents they have the potential to develop into personality disorders, depression, or bipolar disorder as adults.
