Kids and Mental Illness
Recently New Brunswick reporter Vanessa Blanch brought us the story of a mother and her son struggling to find appropriate care for his mental illness.
Andrew Carter is 17 years old, he has bipolar disorder, and he sits on the autism spectrum.
His mother,Vickie, has spent years trying to get the treatment she believes would help him...to no avail.
We also heard how Vickie and Andrew are not alone...a 2009 report authored by New Brunswick judge Michael McKee outlined the need to overhaul the province's mental health services.
This week Vanessa brings us an update.
