Mental Health Care for Children in Crisis

Many desperate parents have been faced with the realization that there is nowhere to go when their child is having a mental health crisis.  I believe strongly that something needs to change so that these children can get the long-term care they need in order to recover.   Fortunately when my daughter was ill during her college years, we were able to get the help she needed.   Many others have not been so fortunate.

I was moved by this episode of 60 minutes that illustrates how bad the situation has gotten.  Visit their website for additional videos on the topic.
