Live Webisode: Behavioral Health Needs of Adopted Children and Youth
Thursday, February 12, 2015 | 2 p.m. Eastern Time
Approximately 135,000 children are adopted in the United States each year. Children and youth who are adopted experience various levels of trauma and neglect, and adoptive families are three times more likely than birth families to seek out clinical services for behavioral health.
SAMHSA invites you to participate in a live, interactive webisode, Behavioral Health Needs of Adopted Children and Youth, which will explore strategies for supporting the unique behavioral health needs of adopted children and their families.
The webisode coincides with the release of a new report,Domestic and International Adoption: Strategies To Improve Behavioral Health Outcomes for Youth and Their Families. The report summarizes the findings of an interagency meeting hosted by SAMHSA to discuss science, policy, and practice related to the behavioral health challenges of children who have been adopted. The report will be released on February 10, when it will be available for download at
