Help. Healing. Hope.
At Clifford Beers Clinic, we know this is a winning formula.
We ask of the children we see not what is wrong with you.
We ask: what happened to you?
With one question we begin to deliver help.
And healing. And hope.
You are eight. You are angry and have been acting aggressively at school. Your teachers don’t know why, but you do. Your uncle has been sexually abusing you for two years but you are afraid to tell. Who will believe you anyway?
You have just turned fourteen. You know your dad beats your mom. You can hear her crying after he storms out of the house in a drunken rage. So you’ve started drinking his alcohol. It stops you from thinking so much and dulls the pain. Why not? Who cares anyway?
You are sixteen. Lately you’ve been cutting yourself to feel less lonely and depressed. Your parents are busy with their own lives and don’t seem to care. Maybe you’ll end it all by cutting deeper the next time. Who will miss you anyway?
If you are a parent, maybe you are at your wit’s end. Your child’s behavior is spinning out of control. You know that your child needs help. Who can you call?
