We know that trauma in the early formative years increases the risk of mental health problems. Many children in care have experienced trauma to one degree or another. This fact should not be ignored, as a child has the right to the support they require in order to deal with that trauma. Children and youth in care, which describes a majority of adopted children in Saskatchewan, are at a much higher risk of experiencing mental health issues and are at a much higher risk of suicide. We must also recognize that adoptive parents need to look after their mental health needs as well as their children’s. Saskfirstrespondersmentalhealth.ca is designed to help employers, workers, friends, and family members support mental health in the workplace. The website provides access to resources to help with recovery and prevention of having an incident develop into post-traumatic stress or operational stress injuries.
