Supporting Your Child’s Mental Health

Getting diagnosed with celiac disease or a gluten-related condition can cause a range of emotional reactions. Frequently, these can fluctuate depending on the age of your child, a situation they are dealing with, a stage of life they are in, or other various situations. This can also be true for adults, however, children require the support and guidance of their adult caregivers to help them navigate these times.

Read the various articles below about how best to support your child’s mental health and please use some of the resources from our collaborators at The Wellness Compass.
