A new child and youth mental health services guide

Kids and Mental Health Services in DC: A Handbook for Parents and Legal Guardians (PDF) is new from Disability Rights DC at University Legal Services.

Chapters are:

  • Mental Health Services at Home and in the Community
  • How Can I Get Services for My Child?
  • Help for Kids Involved with Juvenile Justice or Foster Care
  • Going to a Hospital
  • Legal Rights of Children and their Parents/Legal Guardians
  • Where Can I Get Help?

University Legal Services is looking for partners to help distribute the guide.   They are also offering trainings for families and/or advocates on District mental health services.   For either, contact Francis Nugent at (202) 547-0198 x113 or via email,
