Bumps In The Road
Friday, May 19th, 2023 - 20 minutes
Pam is a dual citizen (Canada & USA) and was living in New York on 9-11.
One of her children had already been dealing with some mental health matters when this horrific attack occurred. The impact this had on his mental health turned an already difficult situation for him, and for the family, into a crisis. He was suicidal.
In Canada, we have a lot of concerns about our health care system and how difficult it is to find doctors. Finding a doctor to work with on mental health matters is an even bigger challenge. And most of us in Canada believe that in the USA, with healthcare being a privately run business, that there are plenty of doctors available, so long as you have the money. As we find out in this conversation, there's a lot more to it than that, and finding someone to help save your child can be a nightmare.
