Children do have mental health challenges and parents don’t have support or access to services without fear of losing their children to public scrutiny,Replica Michael Kors Handbags bullying, discrimination and even institutionalization. The isolation parents feel too often keeps them from reaching out or even knowing who to trust for help. Parents need support from other parents who have lived this experience so they feel comfortable seeking help. The National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health addresses stigma, parent and youth peer support, and access to effective services from the perspective of parents and caregivers, which is the subject of this panel discussion.
