Mental health services in Arizona have been cut dramatically over the past several years. But for children who need mental health care, it’s not always a lack of funding that’s the problem. Parents face something of a maze: Different approaches to treatment, bureaucratic hurdles, and a lack of readily available information…Dr. Peter Jensen, a professor of psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, agrees. “It’s really a national crisis. It’d be like letting every kid with pediatric cancer — three out of four — just say: ‘Well good luck, we hope for the best for you,’” Jensen said.
