Diseases  of  the  mind,  commonly  known  as  ‘ psychiatric illness ‘  or  in  common  language ‘ madness ‘ affects  adults  relatively  commonly.  Psychiatric  problems  also  affect  children,  however  at  a  slightly  later  stage,  in  middle  and  late  childhood.  Many  intense life  events  (  loss  of  a  parent,  loss  of  a  sibling,  change  of  address,  witness  of  any  stressful  situation )  can  trigger  off  psychiatric  illness  in  children.  Diagnosis  maybe  difficult  sometimes,  and  a  high  index  of  suspicion  is  required  to  make  an  early  diagnosis.  Fortunately,  most  childhood  psychiatric  illnesses  are  transitory  or  temporary  and  the  child  can  be  effectively  treated  and  brought  back  to  a normal  state.
