Kids And Mental Health


A lot of older folks say kids have it easy these days, but they face their own set of challenges. Alexander Youth Network knows this as well as any organization. They care for kids who have developed mental health issues due to emotional and psychological traumas. These traumas are not easy to track, and even more difficult to treat, but help is available. We'll meet with folks from Alexander Youth and others to understand mental health issues in kids and how to treat them.
