Do you have any mental health needs that make parenting more difficult? Do you need assistance accessing a counselor or medication management for emotional problems? Do you have any mental health diagnoses?
0 – No action needed. I’m emotionally stable and have no mental health diagnoses.
1 – Let’s watch/wait. I’m recovering from some emotional problems and I am not required any medication, or I have been emotionally stable with my current medications for over a year.
2 – Help is needed. I have some emotional problems that sometimes make it difficult to parent. I am not currently on medication. Medication could help me with my emotional/ mental health problems.
3 – Help is needed now/immediately. I am struggling to take care of my child because I am having some serious emotional problems. I am not able to get my needed mental health medication.
