Before After “Dancing with Death,” said the 15 year-old boy in describing his life fueled with alcohol, drugs and serious depression A Significant Partnership – Children’s Center and Daybreak Youth Services Imagine that your teenager, an honor student involved in sports and clubs, is now skipping school, failing classes and spending time with a new and alarming set of friends. He’s confided in you that he’s seriously depressed and is using alcohol and pot to feel better. Young people sometimes turn to alcohol and drugs to cope with life’s frustrations, to feel more adult-like, to fit in, to rebel, or to satisfy their curiosity about drugs and drinking. Teens with depression or other mental health problems are particularly vulnerable to alcohol and drug use. Among adolescents entering substance abuse treatment, 62% of males and 83% of females also have an emotional disorder, according to SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. Research has shown that adolescents with substance use disorders are most likely to attempt suicide when they also have a cooccurring mood disorder. Continued on page 8 Children’s Center provides a range of mental health services for children including: l Mental Health Program for children/youth (depression, anxiety, ADHD) l School-based mental health program in Evergreen and Vancouver School Districts l Child Sexual Abuse Recovery Program l COACHES Program (specialized treatment and training program for preschool children, school-aged children/youth affected by methamphetamines) l PATHWAYS (free Clinic for uninsured or under-insured children & youth) Helen Sullivan (Right), clinical supervisor, and Melissa Glader, therapist, provide training and consultation to Daybreak staff members. 3 www.thechildrenscenter.org Children’s Center Summer of with Fred Flintstone and Friends Presented by Fred Flintstone & Friends Bowling Tournament at Big Al’s (Left) Fred Flintstone (Troy Van Dinter) and Bam Bam (Alex Van Dinter) were a big hit with the kids at the bowling tournament including Eddie Taylor, who is proudly modeling his Water Buffalo Lodge hat.

The former congressman holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a license to practice in Washington State, which equipped him to deliver a particularly Brian Baird visited with Lt. Governor Brad poignant message. “For some people, Owen, who introduced Brian at the luncheon. through no fault of their own, life and the mere challenge of living itself can be terribly difficult and sometimes terribly cruel,“ Brian explained. “Consider, for example, the case of children whose parents are addicted to methamphetamine or the child who observes or is the target of domestic violence on a daily basis. Consider the child obsessed with cutting (selfinjuring), or who is obsessed with starving herself to the point even of death. When those precious hearts are doing their best to run around and find meaning, love and joy instead are lost and tortured and seem beyond hope, someone, some place must be there for them, for their families, and indeed for our whole community. That is why Children’s Center is in our community. That is why we are here today.” Please join us on April 23, 2013 as Patty Duke will be our featured speaker. Ticket information is on the back page. PARTNERSHIP—Continued from page 3 Both male and female substance abusers who attempt suicide begin taking drugs at an early age and have more symptoms of psychiatric and substance use disorders than adolescents who do not attempt suicide. Children’s Center and Daybreak began an exciting collaboration in early 2011 designed to better serve adolescents faced with both mental health and drug/ alcohol issues. The program started off as a grass roots effort funded internally as both agencies realized that they often share clients whose needs would be better met by a more unified effort. Thanks to the generosity of a Meyer Memorial Trust grant, a new collaboration between Children’s Center and Daybreak Youth Services allows us to work together helping youth with co-occurring disorders in a more seamless and effective manner. Bringing kids back from the brink is a high priority for both Children’s Center and Daybreak Youth Services. Thank you! Meyer Memorial Trust generously provided a $25,000 one-year grant to establish a new working partnership between Children’s Center and Daybreak Youth Services to provide crucial mental health consultation and training on-site at Daybreak. Further funding will be needed to continue this vital partnership. Brian Baird met with some of our current and former board members prior to the luncheon.
