People often say that “kids don’t come with a manual” to illustrate the fear and frustration that comes from learning to parent one challenge at a time. This is especially true for caregivers who face added difficulties due to their kid’s mental health struggles.
If mental health isn’t discussed in your family or social circles, you may be flying blind as a caregiver. What you need is clarity about the realities of children’s mental illness.
As part of our One in Five Minds education program, Clarity Child Guidance Center has produced a wealth of online materials for the community about children’s mental health and treatment. Please explore our archive and empower yourself to be a stronger advocate for kids!
