Florida KidCare Reminds Parents to Check-In on

Children's Mental Health

Approaching children's health from head-to-toe

Florida KidCare reminds parents that checking in on a child’s mental well-being is
critical but does not have to be intimidating. While often less thought of, behavioral or
mental health is just as important as a child’s cardiovascular health, weight and other
physical developmental benchmarks. Particularly following stressful situations, such as
natural disasters like Hurricane Michael, children often feel as much stress as adults,
although their symptoms may be subtle.
Being a kid today comes with a lot of pressures. According to research by the National
Alliance on Mental Illness and the Centers for Disease Control, 1-in-5 kids sitting in a
classroom today has or will have a mental or behavioral health condition at some point
during his or her life. That is why starting the conversation early is key. Mental illness
is like any other disease; the earlier it is identified and treated, the better the health
outcomes. To address this statistic, Florida KidCare reminds parents to consider their
child’s pediatrician or family doctor a partner in starting an important mental health sAy “eMeRAlD stAR news”…….get 10% off
Pediatric professionals know what to look for and are keeping a strong pulse on a
child’s behavioral milestones and developmental benchmarks, and their established
relationship with a child makes them a great resource for initial questions parents may
have. Behavioral health does not have to be a scary topic. Parents are encouraged to
share any concerns they have—the sooner the better, as early treatment improve

A few keys signs to be mindful about include:

 If your child is having trouble sleeping or having loss of appetite
 If your child is reluctant to cooperate
 If your child is angry or irritable
 If your child’s grades are suffering
If your child becomes less interested in an activity they once enjoyed
For more information on promoting emotional wellness in children, check out the
American Academy of Pediatrics website:
“Florida KidCare is unique in its kids-only health and dental plans, and we believe a
child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health,” said Florida Healthy
Kids Corporation CEO Rebecca Matthews. “We strive to serve as a support system
for parents in providing the best head-to-toe care possible.”

“As a doctor, I’m always monitoring a child’s growth and development to ensure he or
she is meeting healthy benchmarks,” said Dr. Jeffrey P. Brosco, Florida Healthy Kids
Corporation Board Member and professor of clinical pediatrics and associate
director of the Mailman Center for Child Development at the University of Miami
Miller School of Medicine. "As kids today face more and more challenges in their
daily lives, we continue to see rising statistics when it comes to child mental health
disorders. The good news is that resources are available to help identify and address
behavioral health issues earlier than ever, which allows children and parents to get the
support they need.” “Providing quality healthcare services to our children could not be
done without our partners and assistance from local communities,” said Department
of Children and Families Interim Secretary Rebecca Kapusta. “We are grateful for
Florida KidCare’s vital role, offering many healthcare benefits and access to services
that meet each child’s specific needs.”
Current Florida KidCare families can contact their plan today to take advantage of
mental and behavioral health benefits, including: member advocacy meetings;
counseling services like telehealth counseling; support group meetings and online
tools and resources.For more information on Florida KidCare’s free or affordable
