Children and youth who are moving toward adoption and guardianship often have diverse unmet mental health needs that can affect family stability and wellbeing. It is essential that parents understand the potential challenges and have the characteristics, skills, and supports that will help them be successful. 

This webinar will focus on the role of mental health practitioners in working with and assessing prospective foster, adoptive and kinship parents, including questions practitioners can ask to better understand the readiness of prospective parents.
