In The Studio: Mental Health Resources Limited For Children

Sep 6, 2019

Caring for a child with acute mental illness can be an overwhelming and isolating experience. And when youth become a threat to themselves or others, resources to keep them safe can be difficult to find. Kathleen Schock spoke with Katie Rice, former Fresno County Behavioral Health Board Vice Chair of the Children's Committee and the mother of a child struggling with mental health needs, developmental disabilities and medical needs. Also joining the conversation is Chris Roup, executive director of the Fresno chapter of the National Alliance On Mental Illness.
