Children and Families are resilient
"Treating a child in distress as soon as possible can help reduce problems at home, in school, and in relationships with family or friends. It can also help build skills for healthy development into adulthood.
I believe children are resilient "
Derek McCarron, LMHC Director Pediatric Inpatient
