When our children first exhibit symptoms of mental health challenges, we seldom recognize them as that. With lots of encouragement from friends and family (if we even share) we are convinced that the behaviors are "typical teen stuff."
Craig Kramer, says when his children were suffering, he "made every mistake in the book- and them some." He had lots of help with that. He got bad advice from trusted people, was "sold snake oil" and waited until his children were in crisis to pull out all the stops and get them needed care and support.
The entire process led Craig to conclude that there is no working mental health system in the United States. He is working to help change that.
This 25-minute episode, "A Father's Story of Lessons Learned the Hard Way" could help save your family some time and risk.
