We recently found out we will have to sell our house and move out of the area. The kids (12 & 8) are devasted because they don't want to leave their friends/school/family. They are afraid they won't make new friends. My in-laws are telling us that they know first hand of children who have suffered mental illness because of a drastic move like this. I have read that moving may cause some issues in children, but mental illness? Should we be concerned?

Moving can have benefits for kids. It depends on the move and how its handled. My kids lived in 4 cities while they were growing up and adjusted easily.
