Wisconsin Family Ties
Children and adolescents with mental health problems are the most under-served disability group. Approximately 12 percent of children under 18 nationwide, 7.5 to 9.5 million, suffer from problems that warrant mental health treatment. However, 70 to 80 percent of these children get inappropriate mental health services or no help at all. And, perhaps more unfortunate, is the stigma associated with having a child with an emotional, behavioral, or mental disorder. Parents may blame themselves and may be too embarrassed to discuss the possibility of a mental disorder with an outside source. There are no simple answers. But that is why we are here to ease the frustration of finding help. We are a statewide not-for-profit organization run by families for families that include children and adolescents who have emotional, behavioral, mental, and substance abuse disorders. Today, thousands of families turn to us. We help parents develop skills necessary to advocate for their families and children. Wisconsin Family Ties continues to be run by families like yours and is the only resource and support agency of its kind in Wisconsin. We know what you're going through. We're here to help empower you to find the level of care you feel your child needs. Call us today. Wisconsin Family Ties can guide you through the steps you may need to take -without judgment because we've been there too.
