One of the hardest tasks after the death of a loved one is talking about and explaining the death to your child or children. It is even harder when you are in the midst of your own grief. This handout offers some ways to help you and your child cope together.
One in five children experience mental health disorders in a given year, yet half of those children do not receive the care they need. Learn how to recognize the signs of a mental health problem and what to do to help your child or teen. Just as you would get them help for a broken bone or physical illness, you can and should get them help for mental health problems.
This Washington-based service is staffed by teen volunteers who receive 60 hours of training and often have experienced mental health issues themselves. Call 1-866-TEENLINK (833-6546) to talk by phone from 6-10 p.m. nightly or text from 6-9:30 p.m. every night.
