the person you have created. This means that you must write about the impact the illness is having on him/her and then his/her family, friends, teachers, and
Your paper will conclude with ideas (based in the research) for working/treatment with this child/youth. For a perspective to work from, you could take on

To find peer reviewed journal articles, use your access to the College Library Journals. I typically go into the Social Sciences bullet.
Use Google Scholar as a search, but you will find that many journal articles ask you to pay for them. Copy the title that looks good and past it into the
College Library website mentioned above. It’s free.
One excellent and free resource is CMHA’S Journal Visions
Another one is CAMH`S Crosscurrents Journal
