As children and adolescents mature and become more independent, both psychologically and socially, their health may be jeopardized. Risk-taking behaviors are increasingly observed in this age group.
We plan to discuss these issues with your child and offer nonjudgmental support and advice. Confidentiality is promised to the adolescents as part of our working relationship. We do encourage them to discuss issues openly with their families. We will inform you if your adolescent poses a serious risk to himself or herself or to others.
Please advise us of any specific concerns you have regarding risk-taking behaviors or the emotional health of your adolescent.
As part of your child's physical exam, we are asking him/her to log on to the CHADIS website and comlete necessary questionnaires for our discussion.
