Hello everyone,
My colleague Kim Hager and I are interested in studying the experiences and barriers to accessing mental health services for families. For the purpose of our research, we intend to compare three groups – caregivers of children with one or more mental health conditions (including developmental diagnoses), caregivers of children with mental health conditions and common medical conditions, and caregivers of children with mental health conditions and rare diseases. Caregivers include biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, step-parents, guardians and kinship homes with children under the age of 18. The survey is nationwide and open to families who live anywhere within the United States. The hope is the survey results will assist mental health providers in tailoring services to meet families’ needs. The study was approved by the IRB and survey is anonymous. Please help us by filling out the survey and/or sharing it.
