Panel discusses treating child mental illness at health fair

Posted:

From local clinics to college nursing programs, KOTA Territory health professionals came together at the Civic Center Saturday to try to keep Rapid City healthy.
 
The Chamber of Commerce brought the groups together for the Black Hills Health and Human Services Fair.

And among the blood pressure tests and flu shots, another Rapid City group was addressing a topic that can be hard to talk about: child mental health.

The goal of the Parents 4 Parents seminar and panel discussion was simply to let families know they're not alone and give them information they may not have come across on their own.

"If you feel like you're the only one going through something and then you find out about something like this and you hear this information," said Parents 4 Parents counselor Monica Sewell, "you suddenly realize that, number one, you're not alone, and two, the next step."
 
Sewell also said while the information is available in the community throughout the year, gathering it together in one place is helpful to a lot of people.
