The parent-child separation at the U.S.- Mexico border has devastated many refugee and immigrant families and alarmed many mental health professionals.

Parent-child separations like this may worsen the suffering for both the children and the parents,” said Nabil El-Ghoroury, PhD, Executive Director of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).

Nearly 1 in 6 adults in California has a mental health need, and approximately 1 in 20 suffers from a serious mental illness. The rate among children is even higher: 1 in 13 suffers from a mental illness that limits participation in daily activities. This translates to over one million adults who live with serious mental illness, and almost half a million children with serious mental health conditions.
