Every day, there are families in our community struggling with their child's mental health disorder or serious behavioral concerns. Although our society is more educated today about mental health issues than ever before, the stigma of having a diagnosis still exists. This stigma often keeps parents silent about their child's struggles.
What does mental illness mean to you?
For years, treatments for children with significant behavior challenges have focused solely on "fixing" the child. Today, through a wealth of research and evidence-based practices, we understand that greater success is possible when the process also involves parents and works to develop their skills and acknowledges their fears, struggles and concerns.
