100s of kids await mental health help in Maine

While I do believe that the mental health system is partly a scam, I am a parent who has been in this position with a very difficult child.  It took her being hospitalized, and getting involved with the juvenile justice system to make any of this happen.  Parents shouldn't have to struggle like this.
Hundreds of kids are awaiting mental health services in Maine and many are waiting months. 
The Bangor Daily News reports 336 young people are waiting for home- and community-based treatment under the state's Medicaid program. Over a quarter of those kids have been waiting longer than three months as of April 27.
