When a child has an emotional or behavioral problem, there are many obstacles to getting effective care. Mental health problems among youth are hard to identify, and even when identified, few parents or even health professionals are aware of effective treatments. Finally, when a child’s needs are understood, access to care is limited and barriers are pronounced for ethnic minority children.
