Addressing the Behavioral Health Needs of Adopted Children

Trauma, neglect, and attachment issues are just some of the factors that affect the emotional and social well-being of children and young adults who have been adopted. These needs can be difficult to address due to lack of awareness or understanding by those who interact with children and families, including care providers, juvenile justice representatives, and educators. This webisode produced by SAMHSA explores strategies to support the unique behavioral health needs of adopted children and their families.
