Mental health goes to school

It’s extremely hard to get access to good mental health resources for kids. As a result many who need help aren’t treated. The burden of untreated kids with mental health conditions falls on their schools, where guidance counselors, nurses, and other staff and outsiders have been stepping up to help.

  1. Money quote from the article:

    “…Davila found a virtual second parent in the psychological counselor at the Sarah Greenwood School”

    Most of the mom’s we’re talking about don’t need mental health providers, they need husbands (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) and they need parenting skills.

    Most of the kids I see on the child psychiatry unit at my hospital have been MADE to be the way they are, as opposed to having been BORN the way they are.

  2. When mothers start having children so young that they are children themselves, they probably have a hard time developing parenting skills.
