Many mental health providers are being inundated with new patients, many of whom are being turned away because they’re at capacity. Wait lists are long just for an initial evaluation, leaving the child to suffer. Many parents cannot afford services for their child because of insurance.
Sadly, 41% of kids with anxiety cannot gain access to any mental health services for a variety of reasons. This is true for those suffering from ADHD, depression, and behavioral issues, compounding the mental health crisis.
Maybe Facing the Beast Within can help a little.
