Info for Parents
Children and youth show their problems in different areas of their lives and in a variety of ways. A child or adolescent who functions well at home may have problems in another setting, such as in the classroom or with peers. Some young people may show signs of anxiety or depression, while others may exhibit aggression, get in trouble with the law or have difficulties with substance use.
As a parent or caregiver, you may feel confused and anxious about meeting the needs of a child or youth with these issues, and about where and how to seek information and treatment.
Info for Children and Youth
Children living with a parent dealing with substance use and/or mental health problems often have important and unanswered questions:

- Will my mom or dad get better?
- Why is my family so different?
- Is it my fault?
- Will it happen to me?
