Show Notes

In all prior podcasts, Patricia and guests have spoken about the varying needs for mental health services across populations facing extraordinary stressors and vulnerabilities. In this episode, Patricia and her guest Sarah Duncan discuss more globally what might prevent a child from accessing treatment, how to know when a child needs help and what might actually happen in a therapy session. Child mental health treatment can be mystifying. Today’s podcast aims to provide some greater clarity.

Sarah is a Marriage and Family Therapist with a particular emphasis in art and play therapy. She is a clinician at The Guidance Center, where she started working with children in it’s School-Based Program. She transitioned to the Outpatient Clinic where she could work more with little ones and currently offers mental health treatment and support with very young children on-site at a local Head Start Program.
