The Warning Signs of Mental Illness

Youth with experience in foster care may be at greater risk for mental health problems, as most have experienced some form of abuse or neglect or suffer from being separated from their families.


As a parent or caregiver, information about mental health services will help you make sure your child is receiving the best care possible. The Michigan Department of Human Health Services is a great resource that will help you understand the mental health services and tools available to foster youth.
