Summary

This bilingual (English-Spanish) guide is intended to assist parents and caregivers in seeking help for children with mental health problems. As part of the system of care, parents and caregivers need to work together to help the child in need. Caregivers and counselors can help families define their strengths, determine the things they want to change, and find the kind of help and support they need to reach their goals. Depending on the child's needs, help can be obtained from schools, health clinics, community mental health centers, social services, or the court system. Working with several providers can be a confusing and overwhelming experience, unless a partnership is formed with all those involved. This guide, written by families who have received help, serves to help parents and caregivers figure out the steps they need to take in seeking help. Each section explains what the parent needs to know, what questions to ask, what can be expected, and what can be done. A section is provided on finding services for the child, preparing for the referral visit, partnering with service providers, and Rights and Responsibilities. (JDM)
