Mental health presents growing challenges for children and adolescents especially the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this practical presentation, we will explore the various ways in which anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders surface in children and teens. Diagnostic testing options will be discussed, too. We will then review the state of current evidence for naturopathic treatments for these mental health concerns. Finally, we will discuss case studies, yours and mine, to understand how to apply these treatment principles with actual patients.
