Contact us today to talk about your loved one’s choices in mental health care and find the program that will work best for everyone in the family.
A Parent’s Responsibility
When adults become parents, their primary responsibility is providing the best possible care and support to their little ones. But if they are inhibited by a mental health disorder through no fault of their own, their first responsibility is to get the symptoms of that disorder in check so they can be effective in their care of the children.
The parent’s physical and mental health is always the first priority. If he or she is unable to be present mentally, and actively – and positively – involved in the care of the children, then there is nothing lost by the time spent apart due to mental health treatment.
Putting the Children First
When you prioritize your children’s well-being, you make sure that you are the strongest and most able person you can be. If you are, or your co-parenting partner is, living with symptoms of a mental health disorder in Pico Rivera, finding a mental health treatment program is the best way to put your children first.
