With the rising number of children in need of mental health services and the increasing cost of these services, methods to address these needs must be developed. The purpose of this research is to gain a better understanding of the experience of parents who have been involved in the Child in Need of Assistance process in order to meet their child's mental health needs. Participants in this study were parents of a child who participated in the Child in Need of Assistance program due to the need for mental health services. Qualitative methods were used to examine the experiences of one family going through this process. The analysis of the data culminated in five major themes. These themes as well as implication for school psychologists are discussed.
