CHILDREN & FAMILY SERVICES
It's difficult to be diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance. It is even more difficult when it is your child who has been diagnosed with this disease. When a child is living with a serious mental illness, the whole family may be affected. Parents sometimes feel shame, anger and very often despair.
Serious mental illness is not the result of bad parenting and is very often biological in nature. Keeping open lines of communication amongst all family members is vital for a healthy family unit. WellLife Network has helped thousands of families regain their sense of unity for more than four decades.
How We Help Families and Children
