More Information

Families who have received help from systems of care participated with the Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health in creating this guide. In seeking appropriate care for their children, family members reported having felt overwhelmed, alone, intimidated, or even blamed. They found strength by sharing their experiences with other families. They have used their experiences to help develop this guide, which can help families figure out what they need to know; what questions to ask; what to expect; and what they can do. Read the guide.
