"Absolutely, my parents had several mental health issues. Though child welfare workers suggested services, my parents weren't provided direct support in getting there. I believe intentional conversations explaining how necessary mental health services were for my parents to keep their children should have resulted in a different story for my family. Maybe my dad would be alive, and maybe my mother wouldn't still be an addict."

Family Voices United member, Brian, shares his thoughts on mental health supports and how to better support children, youth, and families.
