                      Once your family is seated around the dinner table, the typical conversation starter is: “So, how was your day?”

                      And the typical answer? “Fine.”

                      Getting your child to say anything more can be a lot of work.

                          Children who are part of the foster care system in Stark County will eventually reach the age of 18 and age out of the program. Just like anyone else, these young adults may have medical and mental health care needs. But unlike other young people, once they age out of foster care, they no longer have the same financial and emotional backing at home.

                          Unfortunately, these young people rarely receive the emotional and behavioral health services they need because of a lack of insurance and family support.

                          Sometimes without warning, a child’s behavior takes a noticeable change for the worse. If they become unusually sad or suddenly disruptive, it may be difficult to determine if it’s just a phase or a symptom of something more serious. Understanding the warning signs of a significant emotional issue can help you decide when to seek professional help.
