Numerous examples could have been given in this short online medical journal. But there is neither the time or space. But while there may be bells ringing in some people’s heads, call operators manning the phones on behalf of behavioral health services in chicago, il should be standing by to take their distress calls. There could be someone out there who has not seen her son or daughter. For days.
He or she could just be around the corner, in actual fact. But could he or she be with the wrong crowd? Somehow or another and quite possibly, quite carefully too, your kid would need to be drawn away from such a crowd.
Well, let’s just try and list a few typical examples that could be plaguing the youth and their moms and dads at this time. Gosh, there are just so many. Peer pressure, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, gender dysphoria, suicidal thought; the list keeps growing longer and longer.
If there are any kids reading this tonight, he or she who might be afraid to talk to mom and/or dad should not be afraid to give the call center operators a ring. The operators treat you impartially and will not judge or scold you. And it should be long before you are pointed in the right direction.
And if there are any good parents out there who are in distress then they should be free to call the operators too. The operators will treat you with kindness and understanding and will not be telling you that you are wrong in your position as parents to have concerns about your kids’ behavior. You will be given full and proper counseling on what to do next.
Addressing behaviour gone bad is possible.
