Why can't I get any information about my child's mental health problems?

Synopsis:

Do parents want information about their child’s mental health problems?

Do mental health professionals want to share information about children’s mental health problems? 

If you don’t know where to go or what questions to ask it is difficult to find the right answers. The internet is crowded with information that may or may not be current or factual and a Google search can pull up a multitude of results. Parents then have to sift through and try to determine which are legitimate and relevant to them.

The National Infant, Child and Youth Mental Health Consortium welcomed Dr. Michael Cheng and Mr. Don Buchanan to a webinar on November 16th 2011, 1:00 – 2:30 pm EST. 

"Why can't I get any information about my child's mental health problems?"

Join us as we look at how people access information on child and youth mental health, what they are looking for, what is available and how the system helps or hinders their search for answers.

Learn how mental health professionals can do a better job of making information available to improve mental health literacy and guide parents to accurate trustworthy sources.

There will be opportunity for questions and comments.

Presenters:

  • Dr. Michael Cheng
  • Mr. Don Buchanan
