Children in Crisis: 3-Video Series

Witness three different families as they journey through the juvenile justice and foster care system with their social work and mental health care teams.

    Children in Crisis: 3-Video Series
    In this heart-wrenching and illuminating video series, watch three families work with the state, juvenile justice and foster care systems to address their family crises.

    In Joshua: When Anger Turns to Violence, the mother of thirteen-year-old Joshua seeks help from the judicial system after she is assaulted by her son. In his hearing, Joshua admits that he punched, shoved, and injured his mother, resulting in her calling 911 for assistance. Joshua's mother shares that she is upset about taking her son to court, but feels she has no other option given Joshua's long record of emotional and behavioral problems. Follow Joshua through the juvenile justice system and see the various professionals involved in managing his rehabilitation.

    In Chelsea: Surrendered to the State, a mother makes the difficult decision to turn over custody of her volatile nine-year-old daughter to the state in an effort to get her the help she needs. This video depicts the interventions necessary in such severe cases, and follows every part of the process from court to a residential treatment facility.

    Melissa: Teen Mother in Foster Care follows the day-to-day struggles of Melissa, a fifteen-year-old foster child with a seven-month old medical-needs daughter, Raven. Melissa's story not only represents the journey of a teenager through the foster care system, but also shows how the foster care system handles teen parents and their children. Through candid interviews and the involvement of a dedicated caseworker, witness Melissa facing her tremendous new responsibilities, and the ways that social workers and other mental health care professionals shepherd her through life's challenges.
