When your child is struggling with mental health issues, it can be all-consuming. The questions feel endless:

Why is this happening? Is there a diagnosis we can search online? What’s the difference between a psychologist, a psychiatrist, a therapist, a counselor, a licensed social worker, a nurse with psych-mental health certification? What if my community doesn’t have any of those providers? What if we find one and it isn’t a good fit? Why do we have to wait three months for an appointment? Can’t we get help now?
