Youth mental health services – who should be responsible?
Even in the best circumstances, with healthy kids, a great support network and high functioning parents, there are times when it can be very difficult.
When children are facing mental health challenges, the difficulties often expand exponentially.
One of the most challenging and frustrating parts of raising a child with a mental-health issue is simply navigating the available care, services and resources intended to help.
First, parents need timely and appropriate education about mental health symptoms and appropriate interventions.
Next, they need to know how and where to access these supports and how to incorporate them into their life for the sake of their child.
